Midsummer Celtic Harp Concert with Harriet Earis

An entrancing evening of Celtic harp music in the unforgettable setting of our Little Woodbury Iron Age roundhouse.

Internationally-renowned harpist Harriet Earis will be returning to perform a spellbinding concert of jigs, reels and airs as well as some early medieval Welsh harp music and a taste of some 6th-9th century poetry.

Harriet has performed solo in the Royal Albert Hall and the 02 Arena in London and gives recitals all over Europe and America. This is a unique chance to hear her virtuosic brand of harp music in the intimate setting of our roundhouse. Indulge your senses and unwind in the company of friends and music lovers at this unforgettable event

There will be a bar selling locally produced cider, mead and a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Immerse yourself in enchanting melodies as you enjoy a selection of beverages, amidst the tranquil ambiance of a balmy summer evening. Hot drinks and snacks will also be available to be purchased from our shop.
