Saturday 4 November, 7.30pm

Silent Film:
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
with Organ improvisation



Alexander Mason organ improvisation


Perfect for a dark, autumn evening, we present the 1923 version of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, with an improvised organ accompaniment score from award-winning organist and improvisation specialist, Alexander Mason. A classic silent film, full of drama, frights, romance, and excitement – Quasimodo’s story is told with the thrilling addition of a live score – bringing this extraordinary movie to life like never before.


Quasimodo is ordered to kidnap a gypsy girl, Esmerelda, by his wicked master, and an unlikely friendship forms between them. However, the reclusive hunchback is tested to his limits when Esmerelda is framed for attempted murder, and must fight back against the powers that have subjugated him.
