Mayor launches grand piano plan

Published: Thursday 4th of June 2009

Mayor of London Boris Johnson is to place 31 pianos around the capital in a bid to inspire community spirit.

Starting at the end of the month, they will be chained to several locations around London for three weeks, complete with laminated songbooks.

The mayor hopes people will gather around the pianos to take part in a group singsong, while the instruments will be adorned with images suited to where they are located.

For example, the piano outside the Bank of England will come complete with pound signs and the one on Carnaby Street with display psychedelic swirls.

London is renowned for its musical past and thanks to the London Pass, people can learn more about it for less.

The pass gives free entry to the London Legends tour, which tells visitors tales of musical icons such as The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix.
