2021 Contest

Update (21st January 2021): Owing to the pandemic, the National 12-bell Committee has decided to cancel the contest final which would have been held on 26 June 2021. Our ringing colleagues at Guildford Cathedral have been working hard to plan a first-class event, and we are pleased to report that Guildford Cathedral has been confirmed as the host for the 2022 final; this will be held on a date to be confirmed in June 2022. Thank you, Guildford.

At this time, there is still the possibility that a 12 Bell ringing event may take place on 2 October at a venue TBC. A further update will come later in the year.

The eliminator contests at Bury St Edmunds, St Michael Cornhill and Portsmouth Cathedral on Saturday 27th March have all been cancelled. A decision about the viability of the final, and its format, will be taken in due course.
