Anger as the grand piano is removed from Somerset station Bath City News

A woman has pleaded for the piano at Bath Spa station to be returned to its rightful place after being removed due to Covid restrictions and vandalism.

In a letter to the Bath Chronicle, Miss Loredana Walsh said she was told the piano would return at a later date.

However, with no indication of her return, Miss Walsh claimed that pianists are discriminated against compared to other musicians.

“In my opinion, amateur pianists are subject to enough petty rules and restrictions regarding piano playing in public places.

“These rules are not imposed on other instrumentalists such as guitarists, cellists or winds.”

When the piano was initially missing, Miss Walsh asked station staff why it had been removed.

He was told that due to the coronavirus measures and improper use such as vandalism, it had been removed.

This is not, however, the only case where a piano is present at a public transport station in Bath.

Many years ago a grand piano appeared at Bath Bus Station as part of the Bath Music Festival.
