TWO years after its organ ground to a halt in the middle of Christmas carols, a south Norfolk church is preparing to celebrate the arrival of its replacement.

As a Christmas congregation sang Silent Night, the organ at All Saints' Church in Chedgrave groaned and stopped playing.

Since then parishioners have been busy fundraising and finally have a new organ.

To celebrate, they are organising

a series of concerts during the summer.

The first concert, Chedgrave's got Talent, takes place on June 19, when Andrew Walter will be playing three pieces by Bach, Langlais and Messiaen on the new organ.

Local poets Richard Ball, Annie Rainbow and Shirleyanne Seel will read some of their poetry, Vera Langley will be doing some monologues, and two short

cartoon films by Chris Gooch (with voiceover by Victoria Wood) will be shown.

The show starts at 7pm and tickets cost £7 (£5.50), including refreshments.

Parishioners are hoping it is the first step towards the church

building a reputation for music and poetry.
