hireOrgan

A number of Business Members within the Institute of British Organ Building offer organs for hire. Specifications and styles vary, but in general all are suitable for situations requiring a mobile pipe instrument. Most builders will be pleased to offer hirings throughout the UK by arrangement.

The IBO maintains this list as a service and is not responsible for hire charges or any arrangements but you can enquire directly about these with the builder by using the 'Enquire to Hire' mail links for each builder. Further detail on each builder or specific locations can be found using the IBO Register on this website.
