Britain's Got Talent finalist, Jean Martyn, is all set to entertain on England's oldest Wurlitzer Cinema Organ on Saturday 22nd September at 2.00pm.

 

The Wurlitzer organ has been located at Beer's Congregational Church for the last 55 years and was previously used at The Picture House in Walsall. Jean's show will be far from ecclesiastical in nature, as she moves effortlessly from Jazz to Classical, Big Band to Broadway, and from 40's Swing to Military Marches. Her variety is endless.

 

Studio audiences and TV viewers alike rocked and cheered as Jean Martyn bounced her way into the final of Britain's Got Talent last year. With her bubbly personality, it is fair to say that Jean captured the hearts of the nation. Picking up positive praise from the BGT judges, Jean is now known as the nation's favourite entertainment organist.

 

Immediately after the final the BGT National Tour started, and Jean thrilled audiences the length and breadth of the country. Since appearing on Britain's Got Talent, Jean has received huge support and interest, including an interview on ITV's This Morning programme with Philip Schofield, a feature on the Songs of Praise Mother's Day edition, and St James's Palace to an audience which included HRH Princess Anne, Esther Rantzen, and Rolf Harris. Jean is the only female organist to have recorded on the famous Blackpool Tower Wurlitzer in the last 50 years. To quote one daily newspaper: "Jean is a national treasure".

 

Jean Martyn's show in Beer is certainly one not to be missed. More details can be found on the website www.beerwurlitzer.co.cc   Admission to the show is just £6.00 which includes interval refreshments, and is in aid of the continued refurbishment of England's Oldest Wurlitzer Cinema Organ.
