Well, our (V)EIHF is over…but all the videos will remain accessible for the time being for you to enjoy again and again at your leisure.

Huge thanks to Rachel Hair for making it all happen, to all performers and teachers who freely gave their time, expertise and music, and to all who watched, listened and sent messages of great appreciation and encouragement.

EIHF 2021 will take place Friday 9th-Wednesday 14th April.  It will be a celebration of the 40th Festival and the 90th anniversary of the founding of The Clarsach Society, as well as being able to meet each other and make music together once again.

All ticket refunds for the 2020 Festival have now been made and will be with you imminently or will already have been paid to your account.

In the meantime, we hope you enjoyed the Virtual Edinburgh International Harp Festival. 

The continuance of our very special festival is dependent on the support and generosity of our sponsors, funders and supporters; our stalwart team of volunteers; and you – our fabulous festivalgoers.  

If you are in a position to help us mitigate our losses and start looking forward to 2021 and a 40th Festival to remember, we ask that you consider making a donation via the button below.
