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.
