Founded in 1993, International Guitar Foundation (IGF) is an arts agency dedicated to the promotion, understanding and enjoyment of the guitar, its music and artists. Our work is defined by the Listen.Play.Create programme which features the guitar as the ideal vehicle for diverse and accessible concert and festival programming (Listen), participatory music making (Play) and contributes to the instrument’s heritage through an extensive commissioning programme (Create).


IGF stages a range of events nationwide from festivals in London, Bath and the North East to large-scale summer schools in Bath, Cheltenham and London. We cover most styles of guitar and our events are attended by young people starting out and mature students rediscovering the passion.
