Twenty Five New Bells to be installed in the Bournville Carillon

The World famous Bournville Carillon erected in 1906 has a total of 48 bells housed under the domed copper cupola above the tower of the junior school in Bournville. Twenty five of those bells are to be shortly replaced.

The actual bell donated by the Bournville Village Council with its inscription.

Funding has come from a variety of sources with generous individuals and various organisations choosing to donate the full cost of a single bell. The Bournville Village Council are proud to have made such a donation.

Councillor Rob Sealey, a member of the Bournville Village Council, can be seen viewing the bells before they are all installed over the following week.

The new bells will greatly improve the sound quality of the Carillon and have been described as 'beautiful and sweet' by famed carillonneur Trevor Workman who has overseen this upgrade project.

Once the new bells are installed they can be heard being played by Trevor Workman at 12 pm and 3 pm every Saturday except during January.
