The London 2019 Mini-Roadshow

Goldsmiths College, London SE14 6NW

FOR ALL RINGERS - SUNDAY 8TH SEPTEMBER 9.30AM TO 4.30PM

Welcome to the London 2019 Mini-Roadshow

Organised for all ringers by the Central Council of Church Bellringers, London 2019 brings together everything you need for your ringing, now and in the future for one day at Goldsmiths College, London SE14 6NW on Sunday 8th September.

The success of the Ringing Roadshow at Newbury in 2014, which attracted over 2,000 ringers led to a suggestion of a regular annual event bringing ringing organisations, trade suppliers and ringers together inbetween major Roadshow festivals. The Central Council have devoted some seed funding to this year’s first mini-roadshow and if successful it will be used as a model for future events, held at the same location as the Council’s annual meeting.

  • Try out one of four Training Bells to see what they could do for your tower, make a mini-bell rope, print a 3-D bell or make some noise on the three mini-rings.
