To commemorate the twelfth anniversary of the appointment of the Conductor as Ringing Master here (having first served a year as Captain whilst instructing the new band).
This is the first known performance of 'Old' Treble-Bob-Eight-In on all the current bells (originally a complete Catlin octave of 1748, but all bells gradually recast since though the frame is still that constructed especially for the Catlin octave...and anti-clockwise hanging), the first known QP of it on the bells and the first known successful performance of it in the tower since a 5184 by The Leeds Youths on Whit-Monday 1762
*First Major in Oxford TB.
