A church organ once played by the composer Handel will be played again at a special concert tonight after falling silent for a year. The instrument was installed at Holy Trinity Church in Gosport in 1747 and for the past year has undergone a major overhaul.

The restoration work was paid for using £167,000 of lottery funding. Now completed, it will be played again this evening during a special concert.
