The Minster has suspended all Bell Ringing with absolutely no prior warning. The Bell Ringers are very loyal volunteers, who give up hours of their time every week to keep this Tradition going, and have represented The Minster in local and national competitions.
Remembrance Sunday is THE key day in the year that we remember those who died defending our freedoms during War Time.
Since the end of World War I, Bells have been rung every single year, except during World War II, to Commemorate those who have fallen. It is a key part of our Nation's salute to their sacrifice.
Christmas and New Year's Eve are such special times of year, where we enjoy spending time with family and friends; residents and tourists of York, alike, adore the iconic sound of our Bells.
We request that The Minster honour Tradition by allowing the Ringers to Ring.
