I have spent my life achieving lots of things that people said were impossible, some of them are listed on this website, but for ten years, the big challenge was to find a way into a permanent home for this unique and irreplaceable collection, before I get too old to do it justice. We are a world centre for piano history, we deal with enquiries from around the world every day, and I find myself in the position of being the keeper and protector of a unique history collection, not just because it is my passion, or because of anything it can do for me.
More details on our blog…It’s a scruffy, dusty old barn, but here we can finally begin to display the collection, and use it to try to raise interest and funding for a proper permanent home, where all that history can continue to be available when I am gone.
Although it’s a work in progress, small groups of people can visit by appointment, there is very little display material yet.
