The first annual Harp on Wight Festival took place in 2014. Since then a wide range of harpists from the UK, Europe and South America have been engaged to perform and teach at the event, covering a diverse range of genres of harp music. In order to refelect this, the name of the festival has been changed to Harp on Wight International.

The festival is held in the seaside town of Ryde on the Isle of Wight which can be easily reached from the mainland.
The festival comprises of five days of concerts and teaching workshops by leading harpists. It is the only five day harp festival to be held in England, and also includes a harp showroom with free admission where national harp manufacturers display their instruments and where harp accessories, sheet music and cd’s can also be purchased.
