A Llandudno landmark is set to come alive with the sound of music when it hosts a world-famous organist for a musical evening.

Blind Veterans UK, will play host to Nicholas Martin at its Llandudno centre on Queen's Road next month.

A noted virtuoso, Nicholas first became fascinated by organ music in 1969 on a family visit to Blackpool. Only five years old at the time, he overheard the Wurlitzer organ being played in the Tower Ballroom by the legendary Reginald Dixon.  

Since then, Nicholas has become a legend in his own right, playing at venues in the US and UK including the birth place of his passion, the Tower Ballroom Blackpool.

Nicholas will be at Blind Veterans UK's Llandudno Centre as part of a music themed activity week that will see veterans joining in with activities such as an African music work shop, a visit to the Llangollen International Eisteddfod, performances from visiting choir Mountain Harmony and much more.

Blind Veterans UK's Llandudno Centre was opened in September 2011 and since then has been offering support, rehabilitation and training to ex-service personnel facing life beyond sight loss, ensuring they are able to live independent lives.

Tickets for the event, which will take place on Friday 11 July at 7.30pm, are now available. If you would like to enjoy an evening with Nicholas, book your tickets now to avoid disappointment.

Tickets are priced at £5 inclusive of arrival drink, with a £1 of each ticket sale going to Nicholas Martin's own chosen charity, Miracles to Believe in, which supports the families of children with Autism.  All other proceeds will go towards continuing the good work of Blind Veterans UK at the Llandudno Centre.

Ticket sales close 5pm, 4 July. Call 01492 864574 or email victoria.beech@blindveterans.org.uk
