Street Pianos Pop up Around London

Exciting news - as part of the London 2012 festival pianos will be appearing in 50 locations around London.  If you know how to play (even a little) then have a tinkle.  If not, just hang around and enjoy the fun.  This is a great initiative - well done everyone!

"Play Me, I’m Yours is an artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram and has been touring internationally since 2008.  City of London Festival has presented the artwork in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.
This year the City of London Festival celebrates its golden jubilee anniversary on a grand scale, presenting Play Me, I’mYours with 50 Golden Street Pianos from Sunday 24 June to Friday 13 July 2012, spread across London landmarks and beauty spots of the City and neighbouring boroughs for three weeks of singing and playing.
A gleaming musical marathon is presented for the Festival opening on Sunday 24 June with 300 free piano lessons at every street piano. This will be launched by one of pop music’s greatest vocalists, Spandau Ballet legend Tony Hadley, who will perform some memorable hits accompanied by some of the country’s best young musicians from the National Youth Jazz Orchestra. Make sure you’re at the Golden Street Piano on the north side of Millennium Bridge from 12.45pm on Sunday 24 June to catch this special one-off performance! Then drop in at any piano from 1.00pm – 4.00pm on Sunday 24 June to sign up for a free lesson."
