The Durham Cathedral Guild of Bellringers is the organisation responsible for ringing the bells  in Durham Cathedral.

Some members are very experienced and others less so. New members are always welcome with or without experience. Training can be given. The Guild is always keen to welcome visiting bell ringers.

Durham Cathedral's bells are a demanding ring of ten, but the effects are glorious! The sound of the bells pealing out from the two hundred foot tower, echoing around the river and across the valley, is truly wonderful.

Practices are on Thursday evenings 7.30pm - 9.00pm

Service ringing is on Sundays: 9.15am - 10.00am (before Matins) & 2.30pm - 3.30pm (before Evensong).

The belfry is always open to the public on the last Saturday in October from 1.30pm - 4.00pm. This is an opportunity for the general public to visit the ringing chamber, the belfry and to see a demonstration of bellringing.

See Durham Bell Ringers Website for more information.

Volunteering opportunities for this role will be advertised on the main volunteering page when they arise.
