The bellringers are Cambridge-bound

22 June 2018

The Exeter Cathedral Ringers will be travelling to Cambridge this weekend for the Final of the National 12 Bell Ringing competition. They were placed 2nd in their Eliminator in March and qualify as one of the top 10 teams that will contest the National Final in Cambridge on Saturday 23rd June 2018.

If you would like to listen in, then a live feed has been arranged for the day and is available from 10.45am on Saturday. This will include all the ringing on the day as well as many interviews from the teams throughout the day! In addition, the 12Bell website has historical information about the teams and the competition on http://www.12bell.org.uk/

We wish the Cathedral ringers well in Cambridge on Saturday.

In 2019 the Cathedral will host the prestigious final on the 25th anniversary of the last time we hosted the competition in 2004.

 

Update

It was a very close final at Cambridge for the 12Bell final last week.

There were just under a couple of percentage points separating the top 5/7 teams, so with the Cathedral band gaining 6th place it was an excellent result! They could have gained anything from 3rd to 7th as it was so close. Congratulations to the band!
