What is a #Pianodrome?

What is a #Pianodrome?

In Summer 2018 artist Tim Vincent-Smith and his team will be building an amphitheatre entirely from discarded pianos inside the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. There's one thing we are sure of - the #Pianodrome will be nothing without a buzzing creative community around it. You are invited to attend an action-packed afternoon exploring the potential uses of this incredible space. With live music, an interview with the makers, drop-in workshops and interactive installations.
