Sat upstairs in the theatre is an old and dear friend of the Quay – a beautiful Bechstein Boudoir Grand piano. Built in 1892 and generously loaned to the Quay in 1992 by Neil Gardner, countless fingers have tickled it’s ivories over the years. Needless to say – time has taken its toll and the old girl needs a bit of TLC. Join us and a host of musicians for a delightful evening of piano led music to raise money for a much needed overhaul.
