Within Harps North West we have multiple smaller playing groups. These groups often meet and rehearse together, and are subsidised by the charity in order to fund tuition and sheet music. Dotted around the county, our playing groups will often meet on a monthly basis and organise their own events. All our playing groups are super friendly and welcoming to everyone of any ability to join in, they are a great way to meet fellow harpists and can broaden your playing experience in so many ways.
Sometimes events are organised for two or more of the playing groups to get together and the Annual Christmas Party is always a wonderful gathering of all our groups and members to perform to each other and play together.
