9th and 11th of April, 2021

We welcome exhibitors to the Classical Minds 2021 Edition. 


Exhibitor Fees:                                                                                                                      

There are NO fees to showcase your guitars except, all guitar builders must buy a ticket to the concerts & lectures, which is only £14. All Lecture Recitals and concerts are held via YouTube and the master classes are on Zoom. Once you register, I will invoice you for the tickets and send you all the YouTube links and the Zoom link for the master classes.



Exhibitor Fee also includes the following:

  1. Both showcases will be held on Zoom where all participants will be observing. The first showcase will be Friday, the 9th of April from 2:00 - 3:15 pm. The 2nd showcase will occur on Sunday, the 11th of April from 9:30 - 10:30 am.
  2. Each luthier will receive 15 minutes of time to showcase their instrument (s) on one of those days. Space is limited to 9 builders and is based on order of applications. 
  3. Your name, contact information, photo, short biography, website and logo (if one is available) will be listed on the CM website through the Exhibitor's Page. Once you pay your ticket fee, please email Valérie all the information.
  4. We will announce that you will be at the festival on all social media, in a mass email to the participants, and at the faculty concerts (links to your websites will be included anywhere concert videos are posted).
  5. If you wish for any of the artists to perform on one of your guitars at their concert (not the whole concert, last year it was on one piece) or lecture recital, please email Valérie at classicalmindsfestival@gmail.com to see if it is feasible.  
  6. The showcase is only open to UK based guitar builders.
