Performance Date
4 May 2019 - 12:30 pm to 1:15 pm


A long time ago in a galaxy far, far, away, carillonists discovered their love of the music from Star Wars. The Force will be with them when they once again present a concert on the National Carillon to celebrate these blockbuster films. This is Episode Two: Bells in Space.

Join us again this May the 4th, for a free public concert at Canberra's Iconic National Carillon. Hear the familiar tunes of Star Wars as they echo out over Lake Burley Griffin , played from the 50 meter high National Carillon tower.

Bring the family, a picnic blanket and settle in as the sounds of Star Wars ring out.

Date: Saturday, 4 May 2019 from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm

Event Location: National Carillon, Aspen Island, Wendouree Drive, Parkes
