A great weekend to experience the wonderful sounds of mechanical organs from large fairground organs to small hand organs. Milton Keynes Museum will be transporting visitors to the days of fairground fun with the return of its popular Organ Festival this October. Organs were the soundtrack of the fairground, and the music making machines are still a thrill for those who remember the charming machines from their youth. Visitors will be able to hear the historic organs playing just as they used to while youngsters would have soaked up all the fun of the fair with its toffee apples, hoopla and thrilling rides. And the Organ Festival is a fine opportunity to show visiting youngsters the magic to be found – and heard –  with the mechanical players.
