BellBoard Event

Click here for the official BellBoard event for all ringing on and around the centenary of the World War One Armistice, on 11th November 1918.

Just a quick note about the next ten-bell practice at Blackburn Cathedral. 

The next practice will be on Saturday, 8th December 2018 from 10.45 am to 12.15 pm

The last six ten-bell practices at the Cathedral have been very successful and well supported, with lots of different ten bell ringing taking place. Ringing has included rounds, call changes, Plain Hunt, spliced Surprise Major, Grandsire, Erin & Stedman Caters, Little Bob Royal, Kent TB Royal, Cambridge Surprise Royal and Yorkshire Surprise Royal.
These practices are open to anyone that would like to come along and ring on ten bells. Everyone is welcome and we try to allow for all levels of experience: everyone will get a chance to ring. If there is something you would like to ring on the day, then please let us know in advance.
Please feel free to pass on the invitation to anyone that you think would be interested in coming along for the morning.

There is limited parking available on the Cathedral Court, with access via Dandy Walk (next to the Postal Order), and there is plenty of parking available in the town centre for a small fee.
Please let Ray Hutchings know if you are coming along so that we can make sure there are enough people to make the practice a success.
