Event description


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 at the National Carillon to celebrate these blockbuster films. This is Episode Two: Bells in Space.

Date: Saturday, 4 May 2019

Time: 11.30 am to 2.30 pm

Concert: 12.30 pm to 1.20 pm

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

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, pick up some snacks from the onsite food vendors BentSpoke Brewing Co, Cannoli Brothers and Jacko’s pizza and settle in as the sounds of Star Wars ring out.
