The photograph above was taken at Creighton's Collection exhibition at The World Harp Congress Hong Kong in 2017. We also exhibited at WHC 2011 Vancouver and WHC 2008 Amsterdam.

After two years of delay due to Covid I am delighted that the event is going ahead and I can, at last, look forward to welcoming you all to my exhibition stall one of many taking part at the World Harp Congress 2022 here in Cardiff less than a mile from my home. Being born in Cardiff and living here all my life I might be a bit biased but it really is a truly beautiful city with lots to explore outside the Congress. I hope you enjoy the whole experience as much as the Congress itself. I am also really looking forward to seeing all the other exhibitors many of whom I have known for twenty years.

Please do come and browse my exhibition where, apart from all the harp music that I publish myself as Creighton's Collection and Adlais Music Publishers, there will a wide selection of sheet music and CDs from other publishers and independent artists. With the event being so close to home for once Creighton's Collection can bring every score we stock - we will have many more scores available than could ever have been transported to our previous WHC Exhibitions with no danger, this time, of running out of any of my own scores as I print in house!

If you have a "wish list" please send it to me by e-mail and I can have that packed, invoiced for export if required, paid and ready to collect from my stall. You can always add more during the Congress.

You will also find a selection of antique and vintage harp giftware acquired by scouring antique shops and fairs. There will be some new harp gifts and jewellery including a new range from harpist Zeynep Öykü. All alongside our ever popular hand made greeting cards which are made by my wife Jane who I met in the mid 1980's while she was a student at The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, the venue for WHC 2022.

During the Congress some of the artists represented by Creighton's Collection and Adlais Music Publishers, who are performing their own music or their music is being performed by others will be at our stall at specified times should you like to come and talk to them. I will publish the details as soon as everything is finalised. Of course one of these artists will be our son Ben Creighton Griffiths who has previously performed as a programmed artists at WHC 2008, WHC 2011 and WHC 2017 so his performances at WHC 2022 will be his fourth Congress. As usual both Jane & Ben will helping out on the sales desk.

Creighton's Collection will be running a free to enter colouring competition for younger delegates and non delegate children travelling with delegates. We have selected the image to be coloured, it is a cover from one of our existing publications. Copies of the cover image will be available from our stall during the Congress and I have some old colouring pencils that can be borrowed. As well as four prizes of colouring sets the 1st placed winner's entry will be reproduced on the front cover of the score for a limited print run. The four winning entries, chosen by Creighton's Collection, will also be posted on our web site.

See you in a few weeks time!
