Hillsborough

At the Mayor of Liverpool’s request, bells will toll at 3.06 on 15 April to mark the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster.

Great George, the 15 ton bourdon bell, will sound 96 times at Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral. A single bell will be sounded 96 times at each of Liverpool’s Municipal Buildings and Town Hall and at churches including Our Lady and St Nicholas at the Pier Head, St Francis Xavier in Everton, St John's in Tuebrook, St Mary's in Prescot, St. Bartholomew's and St. Ann's (both in Rainhill), St Peter's in Woolton, St Helen's in Sefton village and Holy Trinity in Southport.


Welcome to Merseybells - a calendar, an email list, details of methods and more for bell ringers across Liverpool, Wirral, all of Merseyside, south west Lancashire and north west Cheshire. Towers in the geographical area of the Anglican Diocese of Liverpool are supported by the Liverpool and Wigan branches of the Lancashire Association of Change Ringers (LACR). Towers in Wirral fall in the Wirral branch of the Chester Diocesan Guild of Church Bell Ringers (CDG). Ringing at St Francis Xavier, Everton (SFX) is organised by the Liverpool Universities Society of Change Ringers (LUSCR),  who welcome students and staff from all institutes of higher education across Merseyside and nearby parts of Cheshire and Lancashire.
