or bellringing, is the traditional English activity of ringing church bells.
Whether you are an accomplished bellringer or a complete novice wanting to try something new, different and challenging, LUSCR is the society for you. We are a small society with ringers of a range of ages and abilities, and are always happy to take on beginners.
Once a week practices with a variety of socials
We practice on a Monday evening between 7.30 and 9pm at St Matthias Church, Burley, usually followed by a trip to the pub. Once you are confident at ringing with the rest of the band then you can begin ringing on Sunday mornings, between 9.45 and 10.30 am.
While traditionally our main purpose for ringing is to announce Sunday services, you do not need to be religious to enjoy this hobby. Neither do you need to be mathematical, musical, old or any of the many stereotypes you may typically associate with ringing!
A historic society
This year we are celebrating our 60th year as a society with our annual dinner joined by our alumni members coming back from all over the country. Another key event in our calendar is the NUA, where all the northern university ringing societies get together for a weekend in November, and we have even won a trophy the past six consecutive years! Over the year we have lots of other exciting events which have previously included pub crawls, nights out, weekends away, film nights, kareoke and much more!
If you are a bellringer, want to learn, or simply want some more information please contact us.
