Summer Organ Recitals 2019

Summer Organ Recitals 2019

Two special events organised by Tours@ St Laurence's

Sir John Betjeman called Ludlow ‘probably the loveliest town in England'. Known as the ‘Cathedral of the Marches', St Laurence's is one of the finest parish churches in England, with its great Snetzler organ. And, for a short time, the church houses the Wetheringsett organ - the long-lost voice of the English medieval church.
