Organ extravaganza 600x405

Organ Extravaganza

Listen to the sounds of street and carousel organs that you hear on your visit to the fairground and enjoy the buskers’ organs on the streets, as they wind their handles to create that wonderful upbeat music.

It will all be here at the Weald & Downland Living Museum on Sunday, 24 September.

Some of the organs were built dating back before the turn of the century.

See and hear how they work, listen to all the different sounds from the smallest hand turned organ to the mighty large fairground organ.

A complete fun day out with mechanical music for the whole family.

Information for Visitors

The Museum’s 40 acres site, historic gardens and buildings are fascinating places to learn about rural history. Visitors can purchase grain from the Shepherds Hut (coffee cart) and feed the hungry ducks on the mill pond. Whilst enjoying the great outdoors and fresh air, look out for the heavy horses and other traditional breed farm animals including pigs, chickens and geese. There are a number of lovely woodland trails, including a woodland play area for children to explore.

Our waterside café will be open or visitors can bring a picnic as there are plenty of picnic areas available on site. Takeaway refreshments will be available from our Shepherd’s Hut (coffee cart) located near the Stables. Dogs on leads are welcome and there is ample free parking. Please note that the Museum is a no-smoking site. Visitors with access needs are advised to read our accessibility page in advance of their visit.
