What we're about

If you love playing or just listening to the piano then our group is for you!

Whatever your ability, experience or musical style you'll be welcome. The idea is to provide a monthly opportunity to play to a friendly group of like-minded people. The events will be informal, the aim being to increase performance confidence, have fun and meet new people. If you'd like to try a duet, bring it along!

Free refreshments included. There's also no requirement to play or even be a pianist, being part of the audience is a great encouragement to the players.

It’s £7 to attend whether playing or an audience member, this covers the venue rental, insurance and refreshments.

Looking forward to meeting you and maybe hearing you play!

--Event Info--

Now in our sixth year as a group, I'm thrilled to announce that we now have our own brand new Kawai GL50 Grand Piano! We previously acquired an identical instrument for the Newcastle group in 2017, which proved a huge boost for the group and for music in the community. It's very exciting to now have the same opportunity in Liverpool!

I'm also delighted to announce our new venue of Allerton United Reformed Church. It's a superb building and was recently refurbished. It's a very popular local hub for community activities including theatre and music.

Everybody is welcome to play regardless of ability, experience or musical style. If you'd prefer just to listen that's fine too. We'll get started at 2:30pm, but you're welcome to turn up anytime from 1.30pm to try the piano.

Note for players: If people could aim for up to 6 mins maximum, ideally for a single piece/movement, it would work best, however let me know if you want to try something longer and could well juggle the timings.

It's a great opportunity to meet people and perform regardless of ability, experience or musical style. Playing is optional however, non-pianists are welcome to enjoy the music.

Look forward to seeing you and happy playing in the meantime :-)

Getting there/parking:

There are very regular buses to/from town (No.86 and others). The outbound stop on Mather Avenue is called 'Booker Avenue' Returning to town the bus stop is right in front of church on Mather Avenue.

By train it's two stops from Lime Street to West Allerton, then a 10min walk at a gentle pace.

There is medium sized car park at the church. Parking is unrestricted on all surrounding streets, you can park on the verges on Mather Avenue.
