We were overwhelmed with entries for our sold-out first Fundraising Online Piano Festival for Westminster House Youth Club in Nunhead and have decided to run this event again in August on Tuesday 11th at 4pm. We are delighted to say we raised £175 for the charity through your entries.

ENTRIES NOW OPEN

Join us for an online piano festival where you can play your pieces on Zoom and receive feedback, an e-certificate and a medal. We will also award one Trophy per class. Medals and trophies are available for collection from us in SE22 after the event.

Entry to the competition is by a minimum £10 donation per pianist. We have been fundraising during lockdown for a children’s Youth Club in Nunhead called Westminster House and have raised over £780 so far since the end of March. Your participation in this event will help us boost this total even further. The Youth Club are providing weekly free meals and a foodbank for the vulnerable young people that use the club.

Ask your teacher which class you should enter and which pieces(s) you will play. We previously had a deadline to enter but the places all filled up well before the deadline therefore we are advising you enter early but there is no deadline to enter. Once all tickets are sold out, no more can be added.
