Membership benefits:

The Brighton & District Organists' Association covers the area from Eastbourne to Worthing along the coast and Uckfield in the North. It welcomes all those with an interest in the organ, its construction and music, whether or not they play the instrument themselves.

Meetings cover a wide range of activities, including visits to instruments of all sizes, from small one manual in country parishes to those in cathedrals. In addition there are master classes, recitals, demonstrations on techniques and social events.

Members receive newsletters on a regular basis, which include details of events, covering our own and other events where the organ is prominent, news about members and vacancies in the area.
