A special recital is taking place in Norwich to celebrate the renovation of a church organ which is more than 100 years old.

On Saturday, September 23 Norwich Cathedral organist David Dunnett will christen the organ at Christ Church in Eaton. It was the third part of the church's fundraising programme which included restoring the west window and creating an extended welcome area and social space.

The renovation cost £75,000. Fundraising included concerts from Norwich-based Mozart Orchestra and the Russian Hermitage choir, a 'Choral Hits' concert by the Christ Church choir and quizzes.

Vicar Patrick Richmond, said: 'Not only will the organ's improved capabilities enhance our worship, but also other musical and community-focused events.'

Tickets for the 7.30pm recital are £10 from St Georges Music Shop on St Georges Street Norwich or online at www.ticketsource.co.uk/christchurcheaton.
