The final Briston organ show of the year, featuring guest organist Chris Powell, gave audiences a musical treat.

The Copeman Centre was filled to capacity with more than 100 music lovers, on November 10.

Mr Powell's set list included 'My Heart Will Go On' from 'Titanic'; big band numbers; a Tom Jones medley; and the full concert orchestra concluding the show with favourites from 'Last Night At The Proms'.

The audience was intrigued by the close-up film of his hands playing the organ.

Proceeds from the raffle and refreshments were donated to the Copeman Centre, and a charity stall at the event raised funds for the ORBIS Flying Eye Hospital.

The next show will be a New Year special, held on January 5, 2018, featuring entertainer Mick Leary and friends with all proceeds going to ORBIS.

Organisers thanked the 'wonderful live-music lovers who have made our series of shows in 2017 so successful'.
