Please check in at the Turner Sims Box Office Reception 5 minutes ahead of your ‘Try the Pianos’ confirmed session time, where you will be met and escorted to the Keyboard Room. There is a level access route between the two venues. Due to the running schedule, it may not be possible to accommodate late comers.
