NICHOLAS MARTIN B.E.M.
OUR ARTIST FOR DECEMBER
Our special Christmas Concert will be held on Tuesday December 18th. at St. Peter’s
Hall, Woodhall Spa, starting at 7.30 pm and features our President, international
organist Nicholas Martin B.E.M.
Nicholas Martin, who was voted in as Honorary President of the Woodhall Spa Society
in August 2017, 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 were 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
well over £300,000.
Nicholas Martin is a brilliant musician and entertainer and we can promise a wonderful
evening, with music of all styles, from the light classics through to the Blackpool
sound. He will also feature Christmas music and carols in his special Christmas
programme, so why not come along and support this outstanding live music event in
Woodhall Spa. Visitors are always made very welcome and admission is only £7.00.
The concert will take place on Tuesday 18th December, 2018 and starts at 7.30
pm in St. Peter’s Hall, The Broadway, Woodhall Spa, LN10 6ST. Further information
