One of the successful initiatives for the tail end of 2019 was the introduction of a street piano to the inside of the building. Working with local recycling and resale organisation Reviive, Oswestry Indoor Market now has a street piano aimed at encouraging any musicians to showcase their talents, whilst at the same time entertaining passers-by.
The upcycled instrument will be in place indefinitely at the indoor market and follows a successful campaign by Reviive whereby members of the public were encouraged to donate their now unwanted but playable pianos to the organisation, for use in several locations. Already the market has enjoyed members of the public playing and there is an opportunity for pianists to be occasionally booked to add ambiance to the hall. Feel free to have a go !
Congratulations go to Chloe-Ann Babywear who is located downstairs inside the Powis Hall. Chloe won this year’s ‘Best Dressed Christmas Window’ judged by Oswestry Life magazine and will receive some editorial inside the next issue of the monthly publication. Her handmade igloo looked amazing.
