Piano Installation

December 2020

An old piano was donated to Rea Brook Wonders and with permissions of the Nature Reserve's site manager, and  support of Shrewsbury Town Council, the piano was installed in the Nature Reserve, on the Hazledine Way underpass. It took a team of volunteers to wheel the piano down a muddy track and to securely fix it to the wall of the bridge structure. We then painted the piano white.

It was a pop-up experiment to surprise and delight passers by on their daily walks during lockdown. Members of the enjoyed playing the piano and  posted photographs and videos on our Rea Brook Wonders Facebook Page.

The floods came early in December and as the river levels rose, we decided to remove the piano and have begun to dismantle it to make artworks from its innards!
