To mark the centenary of the Rest House on Bournville Green, ‘The Friends of the Carillon’ are looking for local residents to enter their craft competition to celebrate this iconic building’s history and heritage.
The Rest House was originally gifted to George and Elizabeth Cadbury by employees from the Cadbury factories around the world to celebrate their silver wedding anniversary. It now forms an important aspect of the landscape of Bournville.
Our competition is open to all with three categories of entry.
• Under 12 years
• 13 – 18 years
• Over 18 years
They are looking for creative interpretations of the Rest House from paintings and drawings, collages and wood work to knitting and even baking.

The winner of each age category will be announced at a special centenary event at the Rest House on 12th April 2014.
