The Festival was founded by Rudolf Bing and Henry Harvey Wood after they discussed it over lunch in London convincing themselves that musical and operatic festivals would be good for the communities after World War II ended. After lots of planning and getting everything ready for a large crowd, The first International Festival took place between 22 August and 11 September and has since taken place every August.

Reverend Catherine McConnachie became the first female ordained as a minister in the Church of Scotland after Mary Levison petitioned the General Assembly for ordination in 1963. It wasn’t long until the local Presbyterian Church’s elders came together with the General Assembly and changed its legislation to allow the ordination of women as elders in 1966 and as ministers in 1968. Today there are many women serving the Church of Scotland as ministers, elders, and deaconess.
