The Musical Museum

The Musical Museum
399 High Street

This year the Banquet will take place at The Musical Museum containing one of the world’s foremost collections of automatic instruments. From the tiny clockwork Musical Box to the self playing “Mighty Wurlitzer,” the collection embraces an impressive and comprehensive array of sophisticated reproducing pianos, orchestrions, orchestrelles, residence organs, and violin players. The Museum is arranged on 3 floors. On the ground floor there are 4 galleries to display working instruments; upstairs is a concert hall seating 230, complete with stage and, of course, an orchestra pit from which the Wurlitzer console will rise to entertain you, just as it did in the cinema in the 1930s.

While having a pre-dinner drink, you will be able to wander round the exhibits and even listen to some of them. There will also be time at the end of the evening to look round if you missed it before dinner.

The ticket price includes all food and drinks and the bus to the museum and back. There are limited spaces at this event, so book now to guarantee a place! The bus will leave the Novotel at 18:45 and return approximately half an hour later for the second group. The bus will be available at 22:30 for those needing an early night and will return to collect the final group.

Tickets available on-site at the registration desk.
