About St Albans Organ Theatre

St Albans Organ Theatre is a registered UK Charitable Trust No 276072 administered by St Albans Musical Museum Society.

The musical theatre has a fascinating collection of unique self-playing musical instruments and is one of the top theatre organ concert venues in the UK.


Originally the collection was owned by Charles Hart, who towards the end of his life, wished the collection to still be available to the public and the charitable trust was set up.


The tradition of Sunday opening is still continued as Charles wished so that the community of all ages could enjoy these unique instruments.  Currently the theatre is open every 2nd Sunday 2-4.30pm.   The next Sunday Opening is the 12th April.
