The 2020 London Youth Piano Competition will take place in the New Music School of King’s College School, Wimbledon. Completed in April 2018, this building is a state-of-the-art facility which houses teaching and rehearsal spaces, classrooms, offices and a spacious, glass-roofed foyer, ideal for serving refreshments. This development won a RIBA National award in June 2019, being named as one of the UK’s best buildings, alongside the Royal Opera House Open Up project, London Bridge Station and Battersea Arts Centre. All performances will take place in the Concert Hall located in this building and on a 2018 Steinway Model D concert grand piano.
The nearest entrance to the concert hall of King’s College School is on Glencairn Road, which is off the Ridgeway opposite Wimbledon Common Preparatory School (also known as ‘Squirrels’). The nearest postcode is SW19 4TA.
