Carillon concerts 2023

From Monday 5 June through 11 September 2023 you are treated to a concert on the St Rumbold’s Tower carillon every Monday evening from 20.30 hrs. Once again, the ideal place to listen to these hour-long concerts is the Cultuurplein, where at the same time you can watch the carillonneur at work on the screen. 

There will also be two concerts from the Church of Our Lady over the Dyle, on Sunday 3 and Sunday10 September, both at 16.30 hrs. 

We owe the tradition of the evening concerts to Jef Denyn, who founded the Royal Carillon School in Mechelen.
