From the Central Council: May 26 - 28 Lancaster event open to all!

As already previewed, the Central Council meeting weekend is following a new format, themed on inclusion and outreach. As well as the annual meeting itself, there is a wide variety of seminars, sessions, stalls and activities on offer for ALL ringers.

We are pleased to announce that we are now taking online bookings from all ringers. We look forward to seeing ringers from far and wide at this exciting event.

The eighth Ringing World National Youth Contest will take place on Saturday, 7th July 2018 in London, hosted by the Southwark Cathedral Society of Bellringers, where 22 teams will be competing for the Whitechapel Trophy.

We’re particularly pleased to welcome the Brumdingers, Bucks and Berks Young Ringers and Go Bellistic!, all of whom are entering the contest for the first time.

There will be three qualifying heats in the morning and the top 2 teams from each heat will go through to the final at St James Garlickhythe in the afternoon. In addition to the contest, there will be the opportunity for competitors to ring at other towers in London, handbell ringing workshops and other activities! Details of the day will be published in due course.

  • 25th Jan 2016: If you wish to have a group of quarter peals printed together, for example those rung for a district quarter peal week, please create an event for it, enable Linked performances and then select Collate performances in The Ringing World. Please ensure that all performances get associated with this event before (or at least shortly after) the performance submitter sends them for print so they can be caught and collated. This can be done either by the person who submitted the performance, or by the owner of the event; for performances imported from Campanophile, only the latter is possible.
  • 24th Jan: We now have an RSS feed of news bulletins from the front page of BellBoard.
  • 25th Oct 2015: Users who subscribe to The Ringing World may now see this week's issue in PDF format linked prominently from the front page of BellBoard. If you are a subscriber and do not see it when logged in, this is probably because we were unable to link your BellBoard account to your subscription automatically. Contact us and we will link them manually. We also have a library of back issues allowing users to access any issues from your period of subscription. These currently go back to 2011, but we hope to continue that to 2001; they will remain available indefinitely.
  • 6th Aug: A new page shows the days of the year on which you've rung peals or other performances.
  • 4th Jul: It is now possible to download a PDF version of any performance by clicking on the PDF icon in the updated navigation menu above the performance. Many of the old options on that menu have been relegated to a new edit menu marked with a pencil icon. The left and right arrows (or the arrow keys on the keyboard) navigate to the previous and next performances, and the new up arrow returns you to the list. We would be interested in opinions on this new style of menu, especially regarding their usability on phones and tablets.
  • 2nd Jul: BellBoard now tracks the donations you've made, and allows UK tax payers to fill in a Gift Aid declaration allowing The Ringing World to claim 25p from HMRC for every £1.00 donated. This is all linked from the new-look account page, formerly the user preferences page.
