Harp Hire

One of the Society’s key activities is hiring good quality harps to members at affordable prices.  Society members can arrange harp hire through the National Office in Edinburgh, or through local Branches (subject to availability).

Harp Hire Fees

  • Clarsach Society membership: Family £25, Adult £20, Concessionary £10
  • Non-returnable registration fee of £10
  • Administration fee of £30 on commencement of hire
  • Monthly Clarsach Society harp rental fee: £25
  • Monthly EIHF harp* rental fee: £22.50

Once you have signed up as a member and paid the registration fee get in touch with the National Office to be put on our waiting list.  If you live too far to travel, a courier can be arranged to deliver the instrument in our custom flight case.  We will be in touch with you as soon as a harp becomes available.

The conditions of hire can be found here.

*An EIHF hire harp is allocated to members living in Edinburgh. The harp gets recalled once a year for the Edinburgh International Harp Festival, but to reflect this the price is less than usual (£22.50 per month).  After the festival, you collect the harp again and the hire continues.
