Festival of Bells
Welcome to the Festival of Bells
Bathurst has a world-class Carillon, one of three Carillons in Australia and the only one in the whole of regional and rural Australia.
The inaugural Festival, held from 7 – 9 May 2021, will address the commemorative nature of the Carillon as a War Memorial through a moving Last Post Ceremony on Friday evening, followed by two days of entertainment and celebration.
This event will feature carillonists and bellringers from around the country, together with the absolute best local adult and school bands, orchestras, choirs and ensembles.
