London & South East Branch
Area: from Kent to Wiltshire, Sussex to Norfolk
The branch has a number of playing groups which generally meet monthly. Assistance is given to any member who would like to set up a new playing group. Several day workshops are organised each year. A residential Clarsach course takes place in the autumn at Benslow Music in Hertfordshire, in liaison with the branch.
Branch members receive monthly emails with information about branch and other harp events. The branch maintains a list of teachers and runs a loan scheme through which three harps are loaned out to help those who do not have the resources to hire or buy a harp.
