York Colleges Guild Change Ringers

The Welcome to the York Colleges Guild Change Ringers is a group of bell ringers, consisting of students from the University of York and York St John who ring the bells at various churches across the city of York (see the map below).

Anyone is welcome to come along to our practices – we will cater for all regardless of whether you are an experienced ringer or have never touched a bell rope.

The practice is every Sunday afternoon at 15:30. The location changes weekly to give a chance to try different bells each week, as they are all different. In one practice many pieces are rung by different bands. However, there is also the opportunity to take part in longer performances. Members of YCG were heavily involved in ringing organised for the Diamond Jubilee celebrations and to welcome the Olympic torch relay to York.
