‘Pianothon’ Success with Mike Grist at The Bargeman’s Rest

‘Pianothon’ Success with Mike Grist at The Bargeman’s Rest

Did you join us here at The Bargeman’s Rest on the 12th January 2020 to help support our friend Mike Grist in raising money for the South Wight Youth Theatre? 

Mike is a local pianist performing across the Island with a varied music style. His 12 hour Pianothon here at The Bargeman’s Rest was in aid of raising money and awareness for the South Wight Youth Theatre, a young persons charity providing drama coaching and performance opportunities for young people up to the age of 18 right here on the Isle of Wight.

Mike preformed for 12 hours straight from 10:30am – 10:30pm keeping our lovely customers entertained throughout the day and raising a fantastic £1,250 for the charity, Well done Mike! 

On his Facebook @mikegristmusic he thanked all who attended and donated, by saying: 

Dear all, I must give thanks to all of those who contributed to last week’s Pianothon. The whole 12 hours was completed, and I must give thanks to Jane Gibbs and Dan from the Bargeman’s, to the band of merry men (and women) who stayed ‘TIL the end, and also those members of South Wight Youth Theatre who appeared during the day. Thanks to some VERY generous donations, I managed to raise £1250.00. I am a very happy man. Thank you all.

Be sure to visit his Facebook to be kept up to date with any future gigs and don’t forget to give The Bargeman’s Rest a follow too, to hear about all the upcoming live entertainment.
