The Carillon Society of Britain and Ireland (CSBI) was founded in 1976 as the British Carillon Society, with its inaugural meeting at St Mary’s Lowe House, St. Helens. The principal aims of the Society are to promote the art of the carillon in Great Britain and Ireland, having a particular concern for carillons and chimes played by the traditional baton keyboard. The Society holds regular meetings and co-operates with carillon societies in other countries. The Society is a member of the World Carillon Federation. We publish carillon and chime music, as well as a newsletter twice a year. Membership is open to carillonists, chimers and interested individuals and organisations which support the aims of the Society.
