Barrow Bells - Event Calendar
When do the bells ring?
For more information about our regular weekly ringing, please visit the REGULAR RINGING SCHEDULE page.
In addition to regular ringing there are weddings and other services; civic/national events to mark; visiting ringers; tower open days; bellringers meetings; quarter peals and peals; and other occasions when the bells are rung. Most are relatively infrequent and short (less than 1 hour continuous ringing), although occasionally there can be more than 1 wedding or event in a day, a branch/association meeting lasting 2 hours, or a peal lasting 3 hours.
We try to notify the public, local residents and community in advance of any planned additional (non-regular) ringing at St James' Tower as follows...
