More than 20 pianos, collectively worth £50,000, are being given away to schools and community groups across the region.

There will be 21 pianos, all involved in a concert at Kings College Chapel, Cambridge, available.

The pianos are being given away by Cookes Pianos of Norwich and their Cambridge sister store, Millers Music, as they celebrate their 130th and 160th anniversaries respectively.

Schools, community centres, churches and other education institutions across Suffolk can apply to receive one of the instruments via www.millersmusic.co.uk/21pianos. The closing date is March 12.

Simon Pollard, managing director at Millers and Cookes, said: 'We hope that giving away all 21 pianos used in the performance to schools and community groups will help to inspire and support more music students in our region. We're passionate about giving young people the opportunity to learn, play and enjoy music.'

The only cost will be delivery at £150+VAT.
