Dedicated To The Late, Great Nicky Hopkins, 24th February 1944 - 6th September 1994


A memorial for Nicky in the form of a “piano” park bench is currently being manufactured, to be unveiled by Nicky’s widow, Moira Hopkins, in the presence of the Mayor of Ealing in Perivale Park, Ealing, London, his birthplace, at 12 noon on Saturday 8th September 2018. All are welcome to attend the unveiling ceremony!

The bench was crowdfunded via PledgeMusic and, to date (30 July), the project has received over 60 pledges totalling £6,208 raised. All proceeds will go towards a scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music where Nicky himself studied. If the total proceeds raised come to £10,000, then this is enough to create a scholarship in Nicky’s name: “The Nicky Hopkins Scholarship”.

  • Roger Daltrey
  • Mick Jagger
  • Kenney Jones
