The Winter Season

During the period when the Carillon is closed, from 1 October until it reopens again on Easter Sunday, there will normally be a recital on the first Thursday of each month, commencing at 1.00pm.

Carols at the Carillon

Each year on Christmas Eve, Carillonneur Caroline Shape is joined by a choir of local choristers for a carol concert in Queen's Park, celebrating the season with some of the nation's favourite carols.

Plans for the 2018 concert will be confirmed later in the year.

Guest Carillonneurs

Each year a number of Guest Carillonneurs give recitals at the Loughborough's Carillon, with a special Carillon Festival held in early summer.

Details of the 2018 festival, including the names of guest carillonneurs and the date and time of each recital will appear on this page once arrangements have been made, sometime in late spring 2018.
