May the 4th be With You: The music of Star Wars at the National Carillon

Concert or Performance

4 May 2019

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.

This free public concert at Canberra’s Iconic National Carillon, you will 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 and settle in as the sounds of Star Wars ring out.

To secure yout spot, Aspen Island tickets are available to purchase at $2.20 per ticket and allocated until maximum capacity is reached. You will receive a wrist band which will allow you on and off the Island to access food vendors and bathroom facilities.

Access to the surrounding lakeshore around Aspen Island is free of charge. We ask that you register for the event so that vendors are aware of patron numbers.
