On Saturday 15th July, the GOA is to visit the organ at St David’s Hall from 10 a.m. – Noon and Tabernacl on the Hayes. Taking into account that both organs are in the centre of Cardiff not far from each other and close to the station, it is suggested that we all travel by train.

1982           P.D. Collins

1991           J. W. Walker & Sons

Soundboards rebuilt; new mechanical action (designed by Andrew Pennells); new console; new piston action; reeds revoiced.
