Why Help Your 
Minster Today?

The Name Sake of Your Town Needs You

Minster Makes Music needs your help! Work on the organ started in February 2021 and completion is expected in March 2022. The overall cost of this and developing the music foundation is estimated at over £1million.

The appeal will seek the assistance of fundraising trusts and ask for support from Wimborne town residents, schools and businesses, along with other neighbouring towns in rural Dorset. Its aim is to keep the sound of music firmly in Wimborne Minster at the heart of our vibrant community.

As soon as we are able, we will be working across Dorset on an appeal which will not only support the Wimborne Minster, but also bring people together. The Minster is the heart of Wimborne and people working together to support it, will, in turn, be supporting their town.

We urge you to get involved today and help support a fantastic cause.

Progress so far

Since 1st February the organ has been out of commission and is being completely dismantled. Much of the pipework, mechanism and console will be taken to Mander’s workshop in Kent where it will be cleaned and repaired and some new stops added. Some pipes will be stored in the Minster to be cleaned and repaired on site. Later in the year a completely new organ frame will be erected along with new casework. We hope the organ will be fully working again by Easter 2022. In the meantime, a digital instrument will be provided to support the music in the Minster.
