Take Part

Who can book a timeslot?

You can be a professional or amateur musician or band, a talented community group, school choir or charity with a keen ear for a tune or a fledgling act looking for a spot of street stardom. A wide range of performance styles are welcome from classical to contemporary, folk to funk or jazz to jitterbug! Or you could perform music theatre or even dance, with the piano as accompaniment – anything an audience will enjoy.

Free Play Fun sessions

Tickle the Ivories will also be open for free play sessions each day, where the pianos are not booked and any member of public is free to play any tune they know. Check the website for the times of these slots, or check at the Liverpool ONE Information Centre each day. These sessions are also licenced for busking.
