Chinatown, Newport Place

Unfortunately this piano has been removed because of complaints by residents about the noise. The nearest piano is Soho Square. This piano is designed by Milo Tchais.

Really what is the point of staging this event when 4 of us travelled to china town to play the piano , only to find someone had locked it with a padlock.... Please ... Just who is the killjoy?
Sad that for a few days someone cannot let the festivity flow!

Every evening the piano should be locked to allow local residents to sleep. For some reason one night it wasn't locked. (It was locked last night though as planned). Due to noise complaints we're moving the piano from this location. We'll let you know where it goes asap. In the mean time feel free to enjoy the other 49 pianos across the city. Most pianos are in locations well away from residents. All the best. LukeJerram

For everyones information families have lived in this area for many years, our family have lived here since the 1800s. Only in recent years this area has become associated with the drinking culture and we have to now put up with idiotic drunks through the night. A piano does not help our situation.

Play Piano And Be Happy

I hesitate to hope ... but as the description of the Chinatown piano has changed, has it been moved? is it unlocked and playable? (Also the same query re Carnaby Street ...) ... is it worth taking a day or afternoon off work to try to play the pianos that have been locked or busy when I visited them? I've enjoyed playing 40 of them, albeit it some of them briefly because of the drizzle ...

I guess the logistics of looking after 50 street pianos is rather more challenging than 20-odd pianos. I have enjoyed the street pianos this year again; many thanks :) The weather could have been kinder to the pianos ...
