Villa Marina Arcade

Featuring the Isle of Man Wurlitzer

The Wurlitzer installed in the Villa Marina Arcade is an outstanding and rare example of its type - A Mighty Wurlitzer. It is a sister instrument to the one originally installed in the famous Tower Ballroom, Blackpool for the legendary organist Reginald Dixon.

The Isle of Man Wurlitzer was installed at Summerland in 1989. Following the closure of that site, the Wurlitzer was repaired and overhauled by internationally renowned expert Len Rawle, and installed as the focal point of the newly restored Villa Marina Arcade. The inaugural concert was given by Len on 17th December 2009.
