Chester Cathedral Guild of Change Ringers: Quarter Peal day to remember the fallen

On Saturday 10th November 2018 the bell ringers of Chester Cathedral will perform a rare act of bell ringing to mark the centenary of the first world war. The day will be marked by seven quarter peals, which will be rung half muffled each taking an hour.

Throughout the day the Addleshaw tower will be open to the public, and people will be given the chance to meet the bell ringers and discover the art of bell ringing.
