NICHOLAS MARTIN B.E.M.
OUR ARTIST FOR FEBRUARY
Our next concert will be held on Tuesday February 20th. at St. Peter’s Hall, Woodhall
Spa, starting at 7.30 pm and features international organist Nicholas Martin B.E.M.
Kevin Grunill was originally scheduled to play this concert, but has unfortunately
had to cancel as he is recovering from successful surgery on his back.
Nicholas Martin, who was voted in as Honorary President of the Woodhall Spa Society
last August, is a frequent visitor to Woodhall Spa, as he plays twice a month for
dances at Coronation Hall.
Nicholas started his career at the age of 17, as the youngest resident organist at
the Blackpool Tower. Two years later he was approached by Nigel Turner to become
the resident Wurlitzer organist at a new venture to be known as Turners Musical Merry-Go-Round;
a position he held for 22 years until Turners closed in 2004. Here he had the opportunity
to play, on an almost daily basis, one of the finest Wurlitzer Organs to have come
into this country. Nicholas has played many concerts abroad, including Australia
and New Zealand as well as 31 consecutive annual visits to Florida to play the magnificent
pipe Organ in the Kirk of Dunedin. His recordings are regularly featured on BBC Radio
2’s “The Organist Entertains” and he has appeared on Television on several occasions.
In 2014 Nicholas was awarded the British Empire Medal for his tireless work fundraising
for the charity “Miracles to Believe In” for which he has collected over £300,000.
Nicholas Martin is a brilliant musician and entertainer and we can guarantee a wonderful
evening, with music of all styles, from the light classics through to the Blackpool
sound, so why not come along and support this live music event in Woodhall Spa. Visitors
are always made very welcome. Admission for visitors is £7.00. The concert will
take place on Tuesday 20th February, 2018 and starts at 7.30 pm in St. Peter’s Hall,
The Broadway, Woodhall Spa, LN10 6ST. Further information is available from Philip
