The organ is an outstanding 3 manual instrument by J. .J. Binns, originally built for the church of S. Mark, Woodhouse, Leeds in 1888. It was rescued from destruction by Eye Parish Church and installed here in 2015.
A variety of quality concerts are promoted by us - from jazz to solo instrumentalists from brass band to choral - in styles from classical to popular.
It is not such a rare thing these days to find a shop inside a Church building, but it probably was quite a radical move when Eye Church Shop was first opened over 25 years ago. The shop has always opened using volunteer help – and the passion to keep it open has waxed and waned over the years.
We have completed the installation of the majestic J. J. Binns organ. Thanks to our supporters and the tremendous skills of the organ builders, E. J. Johnson & Son (Cambridge) Ltd, our dream has at last been realised! Our fund-raising for this stage of our campaign is now complete.
