You are welcome to come and go as you please. Coffee is available at no charge, and some visitors even bring a sandwich! There is a retiring collection.

Masayuki Tayama (piano)

Since his London debut at the Southbank Centre, Masayuki Tayama has maintained a highly active career as an international pianist, performing throughout Europe and Japan and he regularly appears at London's most prestigious venues.

He first came to prominence by winning the TakahiroSonoda International Piano Competition in Japan, followed by numerous top prizes in Europe, including the Birmingham International Piano Competition. His performances with orchestra notably include Queen Elizabeth Hall, Fairfield Halls and the Last Night of the St Jude's Proms, and his solo debut at Wigmore Hall was a sellout event.
