We're so sorry but we are not able to replace the piano in Ightenhill Park. There are two in Padiham which may be your nearest other ones. One is outside Padiham Leisure Centre and one is in Padiham Memorial Park. There are several others in Burnley, and more in Blackburn. Please check the other locations and hopefully there are others pianos you can visit. Arts Development Team Hello Harriet’s Mum.

Piano in the Park. “Play me, I’m Yours”, it said, a piano plonked in the park by a picnic spot . No one about. Empty cider bottles on the graffitied table. “Gazzer did it with Sophie on this spot and she’s a two timing cow”. My dog off chasing pigeons, Grade 2 repertoire flexes its fingers. I sit on the chained chair and play, faltering, “Farewell to Stromness” . Long skies stretch to touch the pole. A line of whale blue islands settles slowly, like a sigh. The heart jolts with each pull of the straining oars, and the backwards surge of the boat through headland tides. Tonight they will creep out of the shadows to touch this park invader, jump at the jangle of sounds they cannot order, send for the petrol and the lighters. Poem……..

Piano in the Park.
“Play me, I’m Yours”, it said,
a piano plonked in the park
by a picnic spot .
No one about.
Empty cider bottles on the graffitied table.
“Gazzer did it with Sophie on this spot
and she’s a two timing cow”.

My dog off chasing pigeons,
Grade 2 repertoire flexes its fingers.
I sit on the chained chair
and play, faltering, “Farewell to Stromness” .

Long skies stretch to touch the pole.
A line of whale blue islands
settles slowly, like a sigh.
The heart jolts with each pull of the straining oars,
and the backwards surge
of the boat through headland tides.

Tonight they will creep out of the shadows
to touch this park invader,
jump at the jangle of sounds they cannot order,
send for the petrol and the lighters.
