As part of the church's 200th anniversary celebration, a decision was made to restore the historic organ which needed urgent attention. The organ itself was installed in 1858 but has been enlarged on a number of occasions, the most notable being by Hill Norman and Beard in 1936. The central casework, for a number of years thought to be an example of the work of Father Smith, is now attributed to Christopher Shrider in the early 1700's.

The restoration of the organ has been carried out by Henry Groves & Son Ltd of Nottingham and the casework by Renatus Ltd. of Bideford.

A Celebration Concert will be given by Paul Hale (Organist Emeritus at Southwell Minster) on Saturday 30th September at 7.30 p.m.
