Code of Practice

The Leeds Piano Trail 2021: Performers’ Code of Practice  

Dos & Don’ts:

  • Don’t play a piano or take part in The Leeds Piano Trail if you have been displaying COVID-19 symptoms, a positive test, or you are isolating due to travelling abroad or living with someone with a possible or confirmed case of COVID-19. We advise you to take a Lateral Flow test 24 hours before playing on The Leeds Piano Trail 2021. Home test kits are available via local pharmacies and online via: https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests 
  • Do maintain 2m of social distance between each performer from a separate household or social bubble, and between performers and the audience.  
  • Do keep the contact details of all the performers in your group in case they are required for the NHS Track and Trace programme.  
  • Do make use of the hand sanitiser and anti-bacterial wipes provided on or next to the piano to clean your hands and wipe down the pianos.  
  • Don’t forget your facemask. Facemasks should be at all the indoor piano locations.  
  • Do bring anything you’ll need to support your performance – as long as you are able to carry it to the piano – there is no vehicle access.  
  • Don’t use any kind of amplification and please refrain from shouting. This is due to COVID-19 
    safety measures. Any additional instruments or vocals must be at a level so that the audience 
    and passers-by can speak at a normal level.  
  • Do close the piano lid when you have finished, especially if you expect rain.  
  • Do feel free to promote what you’re doing during your performance time, I.e., speak to people, promote upcoming gigs. 
  • Do remember you are performing in a public area. Please keep the area as clean and tidy as possible and ensure your conduct and performance is appropriate for a family audience.  
  • Do tell all your friends, family and co-workers what you’re up to, and update your website/social media pages.  
  • Don’t climb on the pianos or use them as a prop in your performance.  
  • Don’t create any trip hazards where you are performing or cause danger to anyone (you or the public).  
  • Don’t attempt to move the piano, tune it or carry out any repairs or alterations.  
  • Do let us know about any specific accessibility requirements you require, as these differ according to piano locations.
