The Annual Enthusiasts Day at Cotton Mechanical Music Museum,
Blacksmiths Road, Cotton, near Stowmarket, Suffolk, England, IP14 4QN,
will take place from 10 a.m. on Sunday, October 2, 2016 (always the
first Sunday in October). It is the last day of their season before
they close for the winter.
All larger instruments in the museum -- the fair organs and the cinema
organ -- will be played all day. I have been told by the organizer
that there will also be plenty of visiting organs this year, from small
hand-cranked to larger trailer-mounted instruments, playing both inside
and outside on the grounds.
This is a wonderful day out with steam road engines as well. There are
usually a few different and new exhibits each year and there is also
a large raffle to raise money for museum funds.
I will be having a sales stall at the event and hope to meet many
friends there, old and new. If you need anything in particular, please
email me before 3 p.m. on Saturday, 1st October, so I can be sure to
pack it for you. I will be offering books and CDs at a discount to
clear my stock.
The museum is situated just off the B1113, six miles north of
Stowmarket, Suffolk. See http://mechanicalmusicmuseum.co.uk/
Don't forget the Musical Box Society event at Brentford Museum
this coming Saturday 24th September, see previous posting.
