19th May – Winchester Cathedral: Listen out for a mention on Radio Solent Sunday at 7:20am!
Service starts at 3.30pm
Winchester Cathedral band has offered a warm welcome to ringers who wish to join them prior to the service: It is important that you let us know if you wish to ring at the cathedral by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
Ringing 2.15 p.m. to 3 p.m. Access will be via the south-west turret staircase and through the nave roof. The entrance door is located inside the cathedral at the back of the nave, below the great west window. There is a long narrow spiral staircase to climb; volunteers will be available to assist and to control the flow of traffic. Please be patient; there will be members of the public visiting the cathedral. If you’d like to ring, it’s suggested you arrive at that specific entrance door at the back of the nave no later than 2.45 p.m. to avoid disappointment. The door will be locked soon after. wpbells.org/winchester-cathedral/
Winchester Cathedral ringing chamber is also the location of the Guild’s Memorial to our ringers who died in both World Wars.
The Chamborough Ring will be found outside of the Cathedral and will be available to ringers and non-ringers throughout the afternoon (except during the service) www.charmborough.org/
A digital archive of all records will be available to download here after the service.
Any further ringing performances for this project, up until the end of 2019, can be be included in the digital form of the archive if recorded on BellBoard or submitted direct to email@example.com.
