The final of the 2022 National 12 bell competition will be held in June at Guildford Cathedral, but the important eliminators took place on Saturday 26th March. We are pleased to hear that the Exeter Cathedral band have again qualified.
The competition has not been held since Exeter Cathedral hosted the event in 2019 (due to covid-19), where our ringers won the competition and became only the 7th different team to win the competition in its 48 year history.
The eliminator on the 26th March was a close fought battle by the Cathedral band which embarked on the 450 mile round trip on Friday afternoon to attend the Saturday competition venue at Chester. They had to make many changes since the last competition, and due to Covid-19, had to make many last minute changes too due to several positive results in the last few days.
It was a chance for our younger new talent to shine, and they did… and they qualified again for this years June final.
