Diary of events


 In March 2020 all events were suspended until further notice in response to Covid-19, see notice.

Details of planned events up to February 2021 were left in place on the assumption that ringing would resume some time before then. But the only events held were the business meeting in November and the AGM in February, both held online.

With the ban still in place at the start of 2021 the detail from 2020 has been rolled over as a provisional programme, which can be picked up when normal ringing activity resumes, at which point the blanket red in the diary will be moved for future dates. (See list of movable events here.)

A few events are being held online, notably the AGM and a resumption of the Elementary Practice in 'Ringing Room'.


Several Branch towers hold regular on-line ringing practices in Ringing Room, at which visitors are welcome. See the list with details.


The list below shows planned events within the Branch. Some events may be subject to last minute change, so if in doubt check again shortly before the event. TBC means that the date and/or time have yet to be confirmed.

Some practices are subject to confirmation that enough people intend to be present. Members receive an invitation shortly before each practice. It is confirmed as soon as enough people have said they intend to be present but it may be cancelled if there are too few. Invitations and confirmation are sent via the members e-mail list. To ensure that you are on the list, contact the Branch Postmaster. For more information about ringing, contact the Ringing Master.
