Very excitingly, this year during the festival we are being treated to a brand new venue, one which looks totally unique and pretty mega ! Its the Pianodrome – if you’ve not heard of it before, it’s definitely worth checking out. It’s just finished being constructed in the Botanics and is a thing of beauty !

If you’ve ever wondered where all the old pianos end up, then wonder no more ! It’s an amphitheatre made entirely of up-cycled pianos !  Open every day from 3 – 26 August..

There is lots of fun to be had at the Pianodrome over August, including :

Drop in and play sessions – Daily 10am – 4pm
Five pianos are tuned for all to play and the rest are used to build a circle of tiered seating. Come along for free events, workshops and performances.

A host of wonderful free workshops, including one this Friday, the 3rd August by the brilliant Rowanbank Environmental Arts and Education – a ‘tree circus’ – Free family circus show, set in the beautiful grounds of the Botanics- between 3pm -4pm……one not to miss !

Sat 4 // Something Smashing improv dance and music showcase // 2-5pm
Sun 5 // Healing Plants Walk with Rachel Ashton Art (bring a pencil and sketchbook and arrive early for a prompt departure!) // 2-3pm
