About

Worthing’s wonderful Wurlitzer is a combination of select orchestral voices and superb craftsmanship. The sound you hear is produced from over 1,500 pipes, which come from the two organ chambers each side of the stage.

Blackpool Tower’s Ballroom is home to what must be the most famous and most played Wurlitzer in the world and Phil Kelsall has amazingly now completed 40 years at the Tower, having been appointed in 1975, initially as organist in the Tower Circus band with occasional appearances in the Ballroom.

The demands on Phil for concert appearances have always been heavy and his touring season begins at the end of October and continues until May each year when he returns to the Tower Ballroom for the summer season. A significant engagement is playing the Wurlitzer at the Thursford Collection for their season of Christmas shows, which runs to around 70 performances each year, performing to an estimated audience of over 110,000. Phil performs frequent concerts in the the USA and has undertaken a highly successful tour of Australia and New Zealand.
