The Wales Harp Festival is the place to be for any lover of classical music or, in fact, for any lover of music of any description. It is a fantastic event that occurs on an annual basis, showcasing the finest harpists from all over the British Isles.
Directed by the internationally renowned harpist, Elinor Bennett, the Wales Harp Festival is a celebration of all things harp. Last year, the festival celebrated the fifteenth anniversary of the CGWM, with well-known Welsh harpists such as Rhiain Dyer, Glain Dafydd and Angharad Wyn Jones taking part, and this year promises to be both bigger and better.
Located within the town walls of the beautiful city of Caernarfon, the Wales Harp Festival is a lovely event taking place in even lovelier surroundings. In terms of the events, there is something for everyone. There are, of course, a variety of different live performances from acclaimed harpists, but there’s also a selection of lectures and workshops, and even tuition is available, perfect for harpists of any and all ages and ability levels.

Caernarfon is known for one thing more than anything else: its mighty castle. This immense fortress dates back to the end of the 13th century – King Edward I of England had begun his Welsh conquest, taking the town of Caernarfon in 1283. The pre-existing motte and bailey structure was demolished under his instruction, and in its place began work on the impressive stone structure we know today.
