2010 was the 200th anniversary of the St Thomas' Church organ and was marked by a series of events featuring the organ. A major restoration appeal is planned, following the final phase of the church's fabric appeal.
In 1810, a new organ was installed at St Thomas' Church, by a Mr England of London. It was inaugurated on 25th March in that year, by Mr Sims, organist of St Philip's Church (later the cathedral) in Birmingham. A choir from the Birmingham Oratorio Choral Society sang at the event. Over the years, it has been adapted, augmented and revoiced by a succession of organ builders, with the result that the present-day instrument lacks tonal unity and needs extensive work. In June 2010, with assistance from the Leche Trust, the organ keyboards were replaced, with the work being carried out by organ builder, Paul Daly. Further work is planned in the near future to renew the piston capture system.
