We invite you to Pukeahu to hear National Carillonist, Timothy Hurd QSM, playing the Carillon bells– all 74 of them (but probably not at the same time!) at our regular free recitals.
Spice up your weekday lunchtime or Sunday afternoon with the sounds of the Carillon. Feel free to bring a picnic along. As the Carillon is best heard from outside, we will keep calm and ‘carillon’ rain or shine every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday afternoon.
Located only 15 minutes walk from Te Papa and Wellington's waterfront it's a quiet, calm and reflective space set among the backdrop of our bustling capital city.
You are also welcome to visit the National War Memorial (free entry, open daily, 10-5 pm) before or after the recitals to find out more about the history of the Carillon bells and the national place for New Zealanders to remember and reflect on this country’s experience of war, military conflict and peacekeeping.
Hope to see you there.
