BCS Autumn Meeting 2021: Loughborough, Sat 16 Oct 2021

Saturday 16 October 2021

Loughborough Carillon and War Memorial, Queen’s Park, Loughborough, UK

This event is open to anyone interested to listen to and learn more about carillons; if you are not a member of the BCS, an email to the Secretary (secretary@britishcarillons.org) of your intention to attend would be most appreciated.

Shortly before March 2019 the Loughborough carillon underwent work by John Taylor & Co that included new clappers and a renovated clavier. If you haven’t had a chance to hear or try out the instrument since then, now is your opportunity!


13.00-14.00: Recital given by Caroline Sharpe (Borough Carillonneur) and Scott Allan Orr

Programme TBD

14.15-15.15: A series of talks of historical and musical interest (Meeting Room, Charnwood Museum; Granby St, Loughborough LE11 3DU)

Titles and abstracts TBD

15.15-17.00: Open tower time

17.00 onward: Social in the Moon and Bell (6 Ward’s End, Loughborough LE11 3HA)

The open tower time will be stewarded to ensure a balance of playing: depending on interest it may be necessary to limit the time each player has on the instrument. If you would be interested to play, could you kindly inform the Secretary? Space provided, the tower will also be available to those wishing to observe.
