Organ Recitals

Every summer St. Mary's Parish Church in Newgate, Barnard Castle hosts a series of high-quality organ recitals.  These are arranged by our Organist Emeritus, Joan Johnson and usually occur on Wednesday lunchtimes (12.30pm) and Bank Holiday Mondays (2.30pm) until the end of August.  Recitalists come from as far away as Reigate and as near to us as Darlington.  All seem to enjoy playing for an appreciative audience of local regulars and visitors to the town.
