The Brodrick Trust will support the full restoration and preservation of the Leeds Town Hall organ, an instrument of huge cultural and historical significance. This work will support and enable future generations to continue to access and enjoy high quality events that embrace a wide range of live music, comedy, and film in the city’s most iconic building. Although the organ is synonymous with Leeds Town Hall and is hugely valued by many people living in the city, it is in need of urgent restoration and repair and will fall into total disrepair without our intervention. The Trust will also support associated cultural and educational projects in Leeds Town Hall that are designed to engage and enrich the lives of people living in Leeds as well as visitors to the city.
This £1.8 million, two year project will see the organ undergo extensive and far reaching repair and renovation work. Once complete, the renewed instrument will be one of the finest concert organs in the UK – for future generations to appreciate and enjoy.
