The Friends of the Regal Compton was formed to preserve a fine example of a Compton cinema pipe organ in the North-East of England for the benefit and pleasure of future generations.

The cinema organ is an important part of our history and heritage and was a staple part of the cinema-going experience to many thousands of patrons in provincial towns and cities across the country.

The group aims to recreate those halcyon days through promoting concerts and events of light and popular music featuring the Compton cinema organ.
