Our superb 2015 Festival featured a wide-ranging variety of courses with Ailie
Robertson, Heather Yule and a team of local tutors.
The Festival began with an exciting concert by The Outside Track featuring
harpist Ailie Robertson. This was held in St Andrew’s Church in Penrith,
about 15 minutes’ drive from the College.
As well as all the fabulous harp courses available, John Hoare of Pilgrim Harps
showed us how to care for our harps, while Mary Dunsford had us playing the ukulele!
There was also harp servicing by John, and a superb collection of music and
CDs from Creighton’s Collection to browse through. And let's not forget
Jane's delicious Jams!
And on the Saturday there was an Absolute Beginners’ Workshop,
where non-harpists had the opportunity to discover this special instrument.
(Harps were provided).
After the Festival Dinner on Saturday night, Heather Yule entertained us
with her Storytelling skills while we relaxed in our lounge (with bar) in the
College Conference Centre!
We loved meeting all of you harp enthusiasts for our weekend of total
harp immersion in the beautiful setting of the northern Lake District.
