Festival of Bells - Alfriston, 12 July 2014

The Festival of Bells takes place at Alfriston on 12th July from 11am to 4pm.

There's plenty planned for ringers and non-ringers:

Striking Competition with a difference to suit all abilities.  Everyone will enter individually and the teams will be drawn so that every team has a mixture of abilities.  This way everyone gets a chance to win! [No chance for those clever towers to run away with all the prizes]. View Rules.

Open ringing and practice on the bells from 11am.  Entries close at 1.30pm and the competition will start at 2pm. You will be told what team you are in and what time your team is ringing.

Meanwhile take part in the Treasure Hunt; have a go on the Bell Meadow mini ring; listen to Handbells in the Clergy House or have a go yourself on the Tye; enjoy refreshments in the village hall or in there are plenty of places to eat and drink in the High Street; Check out the Exhibition.

So much to see and do in so little time! See the attached poster for full details.  Festival_of_Bells_Poster_July_2014.pdf

Travel by train or bus and include a walk along the river to pick up the Rambler Bus (known to some as the Beer Bus) - there's lots of information available

Sussex Day 16 June 2014

Enthusiasm for celebrating our county of East and West Sussex is growing, so if there is an event near your tower, you might like to join in by having a tower open day, or just by ringing?

Sussex Day was created in 2007 to celebrate the heritage and all that’s good about Sussex. The date, 16 June, was chosen because it is St Richard's Day – which marks the life of St Richard, who was Bishop of Chichester from 1245 until his death in 1253.  In medieval times West Sussex was an important place of pilgrimage. Thousands made their way to the shrine of St Richard at Chichester cathedral every year.

As 16 June falls on a Monday in 2014, most events are taking place over the w/e 14/15 June: Find out more using the useful links below. Thanks to Stella Bianco for contributing this item. If you are doing something - please tell us about it and if you wish to do more to support Sussex Day in 2015, why not let us know? Email This email address is being protected from spambots.
