Leeds University Society Change Ringers
LUSCR stands for Leeds University Society Change Ringers: Leeds University Union’s church bell ringing society, which was founded in 1958. We ring at St. Matthias, Burley for Sunday Service, 9:45–10:30, and practice on Mondays, 19:30–21:00, (followed by a trip to the pub), in term time. We are happy to teach people from scratch, as well as helping more experienced ringers to progress.

As a society, we organize a variety of social events each term, ranging from afternoon trips out to other towers near Leeds, pub crawls, pancakes parties, Christmas parties, and full day ringing outings. Our main social event of the year is our Annual Dinner, which takes place in November, which also includes a Ceilidh! We also attend the Northern Universities Association (NUA) meeting each year, which is also held in November. This is an opportunity to spend a weekend ringing with other university societies from the North of England, (and Bristol!). Activities normally include a tower grab, a ceilidh, a striking competition, and a ‘boat race’.
