Its all about the Bells in June

We have two very special days for all those that love bells.

On 11 June at 3pm we will be holding our Handbell Festival Service celebrating the Handbell Ringers of the South-East of Great Britain. The theme of this service is one of ‘Thanksgiving’, reflecting our joy at being able to meet together after a 2 year absence, enabling us to hold our 30th Handbell Festival Service, and also celebrating the Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee. 

On Saturday 25 June we are proud to be hosting the National 12-Bells Contest Final which is the culmination of the finals of the 12-bell striking contest.  This is a bell-ringing contest in which teams of ringers representing cathedrals and churches ring a set piece, which is then judged.
