Music Has Filled The Minster Since 1408
The Minster organ was originally built in 1664 by Robert Hayward of Bath. There are a number of functioning pipes which date from this time. Originally, the organ stood on a screen which separated the nave from the choir. However, in 1856, the organist, Mr F Blount, removed the instrument and placed it in the south choir aisle.
Help Us Strike A
The Wimborne Minster Music Appeal aim is to keep the sound of music firmly in Wimborne Minster and at the heart of its vibrant community. The Minster is a highly recognised and respected venue for concerts and school events, and draws large congregations for Remembrance, Carol Services and other special services. Most importantly, it is still a centre of spiritual life for many as it has been for over 1300 years. Help us to maintain this historical feature and preserve it for generations to come.
