The Loch Shiel Festival is a membership organisation dependent on the support of its members who pay an annual subscription of £10. In return, they receive direct mailings with concert details and booking forms, and are entitled to preferential seating for pre-booked tickets. Should you wish to join the organisation, click Become a Member above and follow the instructions.
The Festival organisation has been supported by a partnership of local music groups:
Lochaber Community Wind Band
Lochaber Music School
Lochaber District Gaelic Choir
working closely with other groups such as Feis na Gael Lochaber and Lochaber Showstoppers.
The overall idea is for the local music scene to benefit from an annual injection of inspiration and motivation provided by performances of a national standard on their own dramatically beautiful doorstep. Its scope has expanded in recent years to be as accessible as possible for young people, the elderly and families in the local area. It is run by a hard-working and committed voluntary team listed below, with a large number of enthusiastic 'on-the-ground' local helpers.
Current committee members are:
Chairman: Miriam Iorwerth
Secretary: Rachel Spencer
Treasurer: Steve Taylor
Marketing: Rachel Walker
Ordinary members: John Dove, Catriona Hunter, Stuart Moralee, Stephen Carruthers
