Ringing Roadshows are held about every second year, providing somewhere for ringing organisations and vendors a place to exhibit. It is also an opportunity for many ringers to meet, and is the largest gathering for ringers everywhere.

Things to do throughout the day include:

  • Getting your ringers' shopping/ christmas shopping completed at the start of September
  • Having a go on a mini-ring or handbells
  • Attending the seminars and just having an enjoyable day out.
