Glasgow Piano City
What we do
We repair, restore, tune and decorate piano donations from our Shawlands workspace. We have acoustic pianos for sale or hire and are remain open by appointment - mostly. We recycle pianos beyond repair in Govan & reuse materials to create artwork/furniture. We also run our Lids Open Days & other public events in grand venues around the city.
Although we have pianos for sale, we are neither a piano shop nor a piano dealer ~ we are something else in between and have evolved into the social enterprise that we are today. In reality, we are offering more of a Piano Transplant Service, where we aim to connect people & pianos with flexible payment plans, opening the door to greater access and appreciation of acoustic pianos.
Our website was last updated in September 2022.
We've been busy over the last 3 years ~ building a large scale piano recycling project in collaboration with The Pianodrome Collective. You can watch a short 2 min time lapse film for Lids Open Day 2022 and read Jane Barrie's article in the Sunday Post or watch a longer 18 min film of the whole build process, including an interview with Tim Vincent-Smith. You can also read The Guardian article, July 2020, on Springburn Auditorium.
We are a collective of: people, places, partner organisations and pianos.
We have expertise as: artists, musicians, craftspeople & technicians.
