Louise Thompson will play a range of music on the harp. With bubbles, percussion, puppets, singing and informal introductions, this is a fun and informal concert for adults and their babies (aged 0-1).
Louise has performed at prestigious concert venues around the UK including the Royal Albert Hall and Bridgewater Hall in Manchester as well as with the Hallé Orchestra, Manchester Camerata, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, National Symphony Orchestra and Manchester Concert Orchestra. She has performed live on BBC Radio 3, and made her television debut performing live on BBC 1 for the Heaven and Earth show with soprano Katherine Jenkins.

She won the Harp Finals at the world renowned Royal National Eisteddfod of Wales Competition in 2003 and performed as a Finalist in the London International Harp Competition in 2005.
