Our first guest of 2015 was Donald Mckenzie who presented us with a varied and enjoyable show with something to please everybody.
One of Donald's specialities is playing along to silent movies, one of the reasons Wurlitzers were installed in theatres before the dawn of "talkies". He chose a short Laurel and Hardy film from 1927, which got the audience laughing and kept Donald busy accompanying it.
March heralded the return to Woking of Kevin Grunill, who presented a very musical show.
Kevin had something for everyone and he clearly enjoyed the experience of playing the Wonderful Woking Wurlitzer for our audience.
We were fortunate enough to welcome Howard Beaumont to the Woking Wurlitzer as our April guest. Howard has only recently rejoined the concert circuit and his programme included something for everyone.
May brought a touch of magic to the Woking Wulitzer, delivered by the Welsh Wizard Byron Jones.
Byron celebrated 50 years in the entertainment business in 2015, and if his sparkly jackets are anything to go by he will be a shining star for years to come.
Jean Martyn returned to play for us in June, and here you can see her chatting to compère Len Rawle.
Nobody knows the Woking Wurlitzer better than Len Rawle as he is a key figure in its restoration and maintenance. It's always a pleasure to hear him play this wonderful instrument too, and this shot is taken from the video mixing area during his July concert.
Len invited the 2014 Young Theatre Organist of the Year runner-up Jamyma-May Hanson to play during his concert. She took to the mighty Wurlitzer during the show and did her own excellent selection, but also played piano with Michael Wooldridge with Len on the organ console in the second half. What a tremendous sound they all made!

In November we welcomed back Robert Wolfe to the Woking Wurlitzer after a break of many years. The ever popular Robert played at the opening Wurlitzer concert at the Troxy, Stepney, back in August and he gave our audience a real crowd pleasing show which was appreciated by all.

Our annual Christmas Show brings a sense of tradition to the Wurlitzer Hall. Here we can see Charley & Sue Brighton accompanying Len on the mighty Woking Wurlitzer with Richard Cole narrating a Christmas story.
The Chobham St Lawrence Hand Bell Ringers, led by Tim Willetts, once again brought some wonderful sounds to our show.
