The Snow and Edinburgh’s cold east wind could not affect the warmth of the music and the company at this year’s Festival. Thank you to our brilliant performers, inspiring teachers and workshop leaders – and to all who travelled hundreds of miles from all over the world, or who trudged in the snow from just around the corner to listen. The Harp festival committee would also like to extend a huge thank you to our team of amazing volunteers who we simply could not run the festival without.

We are always keen to hear your feedback on the festival, so please let us know via this very short surveymonkey page HERE (or by emailing your thoughts to office@harpfestival.co.uk, with subject title 2018 Festival Feedback).

 

** Next year’s dates are confirmed : 5 April – 10 April 2019 **
