Big Block 454 Says –
Wurlitzer Publix One 4-manual theatre organ, installed in the Paramount Theatre (later the Odeon) in 1930.

When the Odeon became a multiplex, the organ was installed in the Free Trade Hall. It took 4 years to install it, and it was first used in September 1977.

When the Free Trade Hall closed in 1996, the organ was removed and installed in the Great Hall of Stockport Town Hall, first being used in 1999.
