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. We have the exclusive use of a well-located Manchester venue with an excellent Yamaha grand piano.

The events will be informal, the aim being to increase performance confidence, have fun and meet new people. You don't need to play something that's performance-ready, just whatever you're currently learning. If you'd like to try a duet, bring it along!

Free refreshments included (hot/cold soft drinks and snacks) and the venue also has a cafe/bar.

There's also no requirement to play or even be a pianist, being part of the audience is a great encouragement to the players. Our events will typically be on the second Saturday afternoon of the month. There will be a small fee per meeting (£6-7) to cover the venue rental, insurance and refreshments.

Looking forward to meeting you and hopefully hear you play!
