Discover the art of bellringing


The Cathedral has a team of bell ringers who ring the bells in the Norman Tower.


Find out more about what is involved (and get a peek inside the Norman Tower) by watching these two videos, filmed by James Sheen of We Love Bury St Edmunds

Please note that both of these videos were made pre COVID-19.

The bell ringers are currently following the strict guidelines required to ring safely.


If you are interested in knowing more about ringing, please get in touch.
