The Old Windsor Theatre Organ website was set up in early 2017 as a way of improving access to information about this incredible instrument. Use of Facebook started in 2016 with details of forthcoming events posted on local interest groups such as ‘We Love Old Windsor’, ‘Windsor Past and Present’ and ‘Datchet Eye’
Performing organists are invited to write an account of their visit, or memories of playing the organ in Old Windsor, and this forms the basis of the website Blog, enriching the information still further.
Following the concert on 28th January 2018, the following comments were posted on one of those Facebook groups that highlighted a rewarding and unexpected outcome. Having seen one of our posts advertising the concert, a local lady, Cathy Kitson, decided to take take her Dad along who was an ex-organist himself. He has severe Alzheimer’s but he really enjoyed the concert and it sparked conversation between father and daughter. What a wonderful unexpected consequence of using Social Media.
