Sponsorship enables citywide programming and investment in historical bell restoration projects.
— Paul Ashe, Director, National Bell Festival
WASHINGTON, D.C., USA, November 26, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Reconfirming an investment in and commitment to the Washington, D.C. community, the local auto repair company Metro Motor has announced it is renewing sponsorship of the National Bell Festival, making possible a day-long festival of free community events and experiences on New Year’s Day.
The sponsorship enables the festival to produce world-class programming in Washington, D.C. and beyond, while kick-starting additional bell and bell tower restoration projects in the area. This New Year, events include a 160th anniversary commemoration of the Emancipation Proclamation and a handbell concert themed to the National Bell Festival’s 2023 spotlight nation: the United Kingdom. Festivalgoers are encouraged to register for free ahead of time to receive event details directly to their inbox. A full list of programming is available on the National Bell Festival website.
Emerging from the global pandemic has strengthened the National Bell Festival’s resolve to bring people and communities together through the thunderous ringing of bells. The festival takes as inspiration a time when a bell would be the very heartbeat of a community – a time when, if a bell tower was ringing, the village would gather, discuss the news, and plan a path forward together. Whether a war or wedding, festival or fire, the simple act of bell ringing would signal community togetherness, collaboration, and collected potential – values the National Bell Festival hopes to inspire as it gets more bells ringing in more places.
“We could not be more grateful to the team at Metro Motor for enabling our programming through their generous support and sponsorship,” said Paul Ashe, director of the National Bell Festival. “When we need it and, most especially, when the community needs something good to celebrate, Metro Motor makes it happen.”
The festival is designed to reignite an appreciation for bell towers as sentinels of neighborhoods across America, to bring the community together around open-to-everyone events and programming, and to raise critical funding for the care and restoration of historic bells.
