Lecture - IMechE West Cumbria Area - How to do you maintain an iconic heritage Cathedral Pipe Organ?

25th January 2018


Institution of Mechanical Engineers - Technical lecture 
25 January 2018 19:00 - 21:00 
Status: Limited Spaces
Tickets 
 

Free to attend

Description 
                

In the 21st Century a major part of our musical heritage from the grand organ builders of the past lies in our Cathedrals, Parish Churches and Town Halls. To ensure this heritage remains viable and fit for purpose requires an array of engineering skills and disciplines to match other major engineering projects in the UK. This lecture gives a unique insight into the world of engineering for a Cathedral Organ - something we take for granted each year as, for example, we listen to Carols from Kings College Cambridge. If it were not for the integration of all the engineering disciplines, training the next generation in specialist engineering systems and solid project management it is a sound that would most likely be lost forever.

Light refreshments (tea/coffee/biscuits) will be available from start of registration at 18:45hrs.

Speaker(s) 
 

Harrison and Harrison, founded in 1861 and is based in Durham, are makers and restorers of pipe organs including the organ’s in King’s College Cambridge, Westminster Abbey, and St Mary Redcliffe. They also build smaller organs for churches, halls and private houses throughout Britain and abroad.

The Big Sleep

27th January 2018 — 28th January 2018

In a bad winter, 300 elderly Cumbrians die every year due to cold weather as they are made to choose between heating and eating.

The Big Sleep is held every winter to raise money for Cumbria Community Foundation’s Winter Warmth Appeal – a pot of cash distributed to help older people suffering from rising fuel costs and poor health. In the first four years, the Big Sleep has attracted more than 600 people and raised nearly £100,000 for the appeal.

Hundreds of tent pitches are available for fundraisers who want to help keep older people warm this winter.  All the money raised goes directly to keep older people warm in the cold winter months.

To find out more, including entering a team, contact Anne Meeghan on 01900 825760 or anne@cumbriafoundation.org
