Our next Lids Open Day will be part of the 2019 West End Festival and will see us returning to the beautiful acoustic of Mackintosh Queens Cross ( 870 Garscube Road, G20 7EL ) for the umpteenth time on Friday June 28th ( 11am ~ 4pm )        Google Maps Link . . . here

There will be 2 pianos available for you to play. As well as booking your 12 minute slot on the Steinway Grand Piano on stage you can enjoy an informal tune on their unique Broadwood upright. You can get a great sense of this event, and of the building itself, by watching a short film by Charlie Stuart here.

You can check which slots are available on the list below and then fill out the registration form underneath on this page, giving us a couple of times, in order of preference. This helps us to shoogle people around a bit as necessary.

This event can offer an invaluable opportunity for you to play, listen, experiment, doodle, sing . . . just you, alone at the piano. 

This event is an opportunity for you to enjoy that experience and ( if you wish ) let yourself respectfully request that whoever there ( friends & family ) consider taking a take a wee step back to allow an extra breathing space from the pressures that can often exist to perform  or entertain. This event is intended to offer people a chance to play a high quality acoustic piano and to make a clearer connection with your own musical voice. This is something worthwhile in its own right, though if you also want to play in public with more confidence you will know that we need opportunities to sense how we are walking on stage.

The choice is yours . . . to invite friends & family to listen while you play ( along with other participants/ listeners in the hall ) or to request ( on the booking form ) that you have no audience at all . . . and simply have a rare opportunity to play alone.
