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!
