Noel Mander started working on his own account in organ building in 1936.

Mander Organs

His lineage can be traced back to the 18th century organ builder, George Pike England. Following a break during the war years, the firm moved into its current premises in the east end of London in 1947. Here was a Victorian school, which had been closed down before the war and belonged to the London Diocese. After the war, when rationing and shortage of materials ruled the day, he worked closely with London Diocese to rescue organs from damaged churches and to provide rebuilt churches with instruments at reasonable cost in spite of the stringent times.

During the 1940s, the firm expanded rapidly and by the 1960s had been involved in a number of prestigious projects. In 1978, Her Majesty the Queen awarded Noel Mander membership of the Order of the British Empire in recognition of his services to organ building for over 50 years. On the retirement of Noel Mander, the reins were handed over to his son, John Mander. The Pasadena Roof Orchestra. American reviewer Scott Yanow wrote “The Pasadena Roof Orchestra presents a fun concert, with the emphasis on hot dance tunes of the era.

The Pasadena Roof Orchestra

The authentic sound of the band, the superior repertoire, and some inspired humour make this a fun show.” “There would be dancing to a very high standard to the 20’s and 30’s sound of the Pasadena Roof Orchestra, until a Scott Fitzgerald dawn touched the windows” Angela Hurth , my perfect day, The Times. “We were delighted with the Orchestra’s performance, guests enjoyed the evening, especially the music, which created a lively ambience and a perfect atmosphere to celebrate such a great film” BBC Radio 4 - Desert Island Discs, Louis Armstrong. Music Venue Trust.

What is The Music Venue Trust?

Music Venue Trust

The Music Venue Trust was created in January 2014 to protect the UK live music network. Its immediate focus is on securing the long term future of the grassroots iconic venues which make up the ‘toilet circuit’ (e.g. Southampton Joiners, Tunbridge Wells Forum, The 100 Club, Exeter Cavern, Hull Adelphi, Manchester Band on the Wall etc.) These venues have played a crucial role in the development of British music over the last 40 years, nurturing local talent, providing a platform for artists to build their careers and develop their music and their performance skills. The Music Venue Trust has a clear 5 year plan to ensure those venues continue to play their vital role in supporting the British music success story.

Each of our Trustees and Patrons has written a special message for us explaining why they want you to support this project and what live music means to them.
