Management and customers were delighted when young pianist Matilda Walden sat down and played for them.

It was the first time that Matilda, who has a YouTube channel featuring her musical talent, had played in public and shoppers were thrilled to watch her public debut.

Craig Allen, Arndale centre manager, said: “We have really missed having the piano out and having had it recently tuned thought we should get it back out without delay.

"By a very happy coincidence Matilda was in the centre and sat down and played for us. The reaction from our shoppers was wonderful and to hear the piano filling the mall with music once more really made my day.

"We would love to hear more people play so if anybody would care to share their talent we would love to hear them play for us.”
