The National Liberal Club has an impressive programme of musical events throughout the year, including a series of concerts organised by the Kettner Society - showcasing young musicians, concerts and shows organised by our members. These include the London Bel Canto Festival, performances by our talented members such as Dillie Keane (from "Fascinating Aida") and the amazing soprano BeiBei Wang. We also have musical accompaniments to our main events like our St George's, St Davids, St Patricks, Burns Night and Trafalgar Dinners as well as Christmas Carols at our Christmas lunches and dinners.

These musical events were under threat as the grand piano, a Steinway, which we used for many years, left the Club when its owners vacated their space on our ground floor in 2021.

We have since purchased a second-hand Steinway Model D concert grand piano continuing our link with Steinway Hall who tuned the previous piano. To-date (including offline donations and Gift Aid) we have raised two thirds of its £100,000 cost. We are hugely grateful to all who have donated and run events to raise funds for this!

We are asking members of the National Liberal Club, and its 45 plus groups, societies and forums, to continue to contribute through donations and fundraising activities.

The musical life of the Club adds to the fellowship and welcoming nature of the NLC, and it is something we want to build on in the years ahead. Please help us invest in a suitable instrument to bring joy to all our members and guests.
