Visiting the Festival


There is much to enjoy during a visit to the Harp Festival. The Festival’s home, Merchiston Castle School is nestled in 100 acres of beautiful parklands and is a wonderful place in which to take a stroll, sit, chat, or play. You can see a favourite harpist in concert, pop in and meet some of today’s finest harp makers, join in a class or workshop, enjoy a cuppa in the festival café, a nightcap at the late night sessions or simply park yourself on the grass – with or without your harp!

Remember entry to Merchiston and the Harpmakers’ Exhibition is FREE and EVERYONE is welcome!
