Ringing World National Youth Contest

Posted: 03 Dec 2017 11:14 AM PST

The eighth Ringing World National Youth Contest for the Whitechapel Trophy will take place on Saturday, 7th July 2018 in London, hosted by the Southwark Cathedral Society of Bellringers.

Heats will be held in the morning, on easy going rings of 8 in central London or easily accessible by public transport. The top 2 teams from each heat will go through to the final on the Royal Jubilee Bells at St James Garlickhythe in the afternoon. The competition is open to bands comprising ringers aged under 19 on 31st August 2018. Bands may choose to ring Major, Triples or Call Changes on eight bells.

The contest rules and safeguarding guidelines are available on the contest website.

In addition to the contest, there will be the opportunity to ring at other towers in London, handbell ringing workshops and other activities! Details of the day will be published in due course.

For logistical reasons, entry is limited to 24 teams and therefore only one entry per group can be accepted (with “group” defined as young ringers from the same area who practice together). If we do receive an entry in excess of 24 teams, the previous year’s winners of the method ringing and call change categories will receive automatic entry, and the remaining teams will be drawn out of a hat. Any team not given a place this year will be given automatic entry the following year.

The closing date for entries and receipt of the entry fee of £50 per team, is 12 noon on Friday 9 February 2018. If you would like to enter a team in the contest please send an e-mail to rwnyc@ringingworld.co.uk as soon as possible to request an entry form. For any further information do please contact us or have a look at the website!

We look forward seeing you in London on 7 July!
