Leslie Simpson had a childhood ambition to become a concert pianist. He sang as a boy in the choir of a north-country church, where his success as a chorister gained for him the free gift of organ tuition under William Granger at St. park's Church, Broomhill, Sheffield. But he still clung to his desire to become a pianist, and it was not until the advent of the electric-unit organ that his mind turned towards his present job.
He has been cinema organist at the Regent, Stamford Hill, the Picture House, Leicester, the Grange, Kilburn, and has played as guest organist at various leading London cinemas, including the Trocadero, Elephant and Castle.
