As part of Blooming Church the Cathedral ringers will be running three comprehensive tours of the Bell Tower on Saturday morning.
These will begin at:
10.00, 11.30, 12.15
The comprehensive tours include a visit to the ringing room where we will provide an introduction to bellringing (a bit of background, how they work and so on), a demonstration of bellringing by the band, and an opportunity to have a go.
It also includes a visit to the top of the tower, with a glimpse at the bells in the belfry – possibly while they are in motion, and a little time to look at the views from the tower roof. There is a limit of 15 people per tour.
On Saturday afternoon we will be running six tower-only tours, climbing to the roof to see the views and with a glimpse at the bells in the belfry en route. These will begin at:
1.00, 1.30, 2.00, 2.30, 3.00, 3.30.
Come along you will find it a-peal-ing.
