Great musical presentation with historical perspective on the Harp. Unbelievable Luc Vanlaere has established a free event only sponsored by donation to bring this arts and cultural activity to the masses visiting Bruges. I highly recommend fitting this event in your schedule when visiting.

Stunning! Went to see the show with my mum whilst we were on holiday and we both really enjoyed it. Luc plays a variety of different harps with great skill. This is a must when visiting Bruges!

This was an interesting recital. Luc played a selection of harps and original instruments along with his own compositions. It is free but worth donating on the way out. It lasted about 30 minutes.
