MiniMoves to help the Olympianist

MiniMoves has been asked by the Gloucester Music Society to help the Olympianist on the Gloucestershire leg of his 1200 mile cross Britain cycle tour with piano in tow.

Concert pianist Anthony Hewitt – the Olympianist – will cycle with a piano ‘in tow’ from Land’s End to John O’Groats to raise money for various charities.

Anthony hopes to complete the 1,200 miles in 21 days by cycling up to 100 miles a day giving 27 concerts at various locations en route including a cliff-top performance in Portland, a concert with the Manchester Camerata, and a concert on the shores of Lake Windermere.

MiniMoves has been asked to help with the logistics of the Gloucestershire leg of the tour which is in aid of The Gloucester Music Society a historic society formed in 1929. The Gloucester Music Society takes pride in engaging some of the finest musicians from around the world whilst at the same time being noted for its friendly and informal atmosphere.

The Gloucestershire venue for the Olympianist will be St Mary de Lode Church, Archdeacon Street, GL1 2QT

‘’This is a very exciting recital for the Gloucester Music Society, and an important Olympic related event for the county so we need to appoint a local removal firm we could trust.’’ said Christine Talbot-Cooper Chairman, of the Gloucester Music Society. ‘’MiniMoves has the specialist skills and quality staff to ensure everything runs smoothly’’

"We are really pleased to have been chosen to manage logistics for this recital. It’s an exciting event for us, Gloucester Music Society and the Olympainist’’ confirms Richie Lane owner/manager of MiniMoves. "We have a lot of experience moving awkward, heavy yet valuable items in and out of challenging locations such as transporting works of art in and out of the Chelsea Flower Show and similar events".
