Dear Pianists

Find us on Facebook for our latest events, updates, articles, videos and more:

Launched in May 2013, the London Piano Meetup Group (LPMG) organises regular events in and around central London for adult amateur pianists and piano fans. Pianists of all levels are welcome at our events where we create a friendly and supportive atmosphere for people to perform, share repertoire and socialise. We also host masterclasses with visiting tutors, and attend concerts and piano courses, and other piano-related events.

We have plenty of events planned throughout the autumn and winter. Events sell out well in advance so be sure to book your tickets soon. Please note we do not sell any tickets on the door – please book online using the event booking link.

We hope to see you at an event soon!
