Free lunchtime organ recitals

After the success of the annual Recital Series since 2015, the Selby Abbey Trust has arranged a series of FREE 2019 Celebrity Organ Recitals to be performed on the historic William Hill Organ from the nave console.

This prestigious series of concerts will feature cathedral and concert organists from the UK and from Europe who are among the most distinguished performers in the world.
