A frequently asked question on the Change Ringers email list over the years has been - "How much do other towers charge for ringing at weddings?". This table has been compiled to record this information, and other towers are encouraged to add to it.

At most towers, ringers tend to be paid from around £10 to £20, but it can be significantly more for some towers in London! Some towers also include a donation to the Bell Fund as well as their ringing so they may be higher than the rope fee times the number of Bells. If a tower has a separate tower fund it is a good idea to include a donation to the fund as you can get money to have an inspection on your bells every year.

At most towers, if they say both or after, they may also be able to just do before.

NOTES:

  • At Chesterfield, the fees are increasing to £25/rope from January 2009 (£250 for bells out of how much for the rest!)
  • At Chesterton, ringers get £10 each on Saturdays and £12 on weekdays. Ringer-up gets a fiver.
  • At Eccleshall, ringers driving to get to the tower are paid an extra £2.
  • At Harwich, local ringers tend not to take their money, although it is always offered. Visiting ringers are paid £10.
  • At Rainhill, St Bart's has a reduced fee, approx 60%, for before or after. Flat rate for weekdays is £150 (£20 per rope).
  • At Whitchurch, the Ringers Charge £2 extra per rope for Before and After.
  • At Warfield, usually 8 bells are rung, but may be only 6 if shortage of people.
  • At Churchdown, £60 from the fee goes to the tower fund, the fee for weekday weddings is £200 of which £80 goes to the tower fund.
