Welcome to Leeds Piano Trail

The Leeds Piano Trail is bringing music back to every street corner this September as part of the 20th Leeds International Piano Competition.

Developed in partnership with LeedsBID (Leeds Business Improvement District), the world-famous Competition brings its passion out of the concert hall and onto the streets for everyone to enjoy and explore the piano and the city centre.

The two-week festival is bigger than ever, animating the streets with a unique series of installations featuring sculptures made entirely from up-cycled pianos, created by critically-acclaimed artists’ collective Pianodrome to discover alongside 10 instruments transformed by artists and community groups, accompanied by a huge programme of special performances and events.

Growing Stronger Together
With opportunities for everyone to get involved, connecting communities and igniting a passion for music along the way, ‘Growing Stronger Together’ forms a central theme throughout the Trail, tackling topics of climate change, mental health wellbeing and community.
