St Salvator’s Society of bell ringers


HomeThe bellsThe Society • What we do • CalendarNewsContactInside the tower

We meet usually twice a week during term time, in the medieval tower of St Salvator’s, to ring the bells.

On Sunday mornings we ring before chapel service for half an hour.

On Tuesday evenings we practice. This is an important part of being a bellringer; beginners practice handling the bell (swinging 1/4 of a ton of bronze high above your head at the end of a rope needs some practice to get it right!). More info from the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers...

After the practice we go to the pub and drink beer. This is also an important part of being a bellringer.

We also ring for University occasions such as Royal visits, Graduation, and for other chapel events such as weddings. For more information or to book wedding bells, contact bellringers@st-andrews.ac.uk. Wedding bells bookings are made through the University; Click here for more details.

Sometimes we do special extended length ringing: click here for details of our first quarter peal.
