We are excited to announce to you our plans for the
40th Edinburgh International Harp Festival!

We will be online this year for what will be a double celebration – the 40th EIHF and the 90th Anniversary of the Clarsach Society.

Things will be a wee bit different as the 2021 festival will run from FRIDAY 9TH APRIL until MONDAY 12TH APRIL, taking in 4 nights and 3 days.

 

You’ll be able to enjoy:

  • a fantastic selection of concerts filmed especially for the double celebration
  • courses, at set levels, weekend & 3-day, on zoom with capped numbers
  • workshops on a variety of subjects (including several “timezone sensitive” pre-records)
  • the return of several EIHF favourites (including the harp exhibition and the merchandise stall)
  • and other special events

 

We can’t wait to share with you more details about what is set to be an amazing celebration of all things harp. Our box office will open on the 1st of February 2021, and we will be sharing with you who will be appearing in the days leading up to then.

 

See you online in April!
