Welcome to the NWPPA

North West Player Piano Association

The North West Player Piano Association is a small friendly British based group, of enthusiasts and collectors of self-playing pianos, and we offer a warm welcome to new members.

We have members from all over Great Britain (and the world), and one member suggested in fun that NWPPA should now stand for the Nation Wide Player Piano Association.

Our meetings are predominantly held in in the area north of Birmingham and south of Carlisle - see the page Our Meetings for current meetings (reduced programme at present as we emerge from COVID-19 restrictions).

For further details of our group please see the About Us page
