Bute Hall Organ
The Lewis organ in Bute Hall, which sits above the north entrance to the hall, was installed in 1904 and substantially rebuilt in 1962. It’s mainly played at graduation ceremonies and other larger events. I’ve only heard it being played once, and that was at last year’s Freshers’ Address when they played the Imperial March as the heads of the student unions, the University Senate, and the Rector walked onto the stage in front of the gathered Freshers. It was a nice touch.
Update: Apparently the organist played the theme to Jurassic Park at a graduation ceremony this year. (Source: Twitter)
