Events are organised by our events rep, William Regan. Will has lots of experience running and organising youth events and so is the perfect fit for this role.

Organising these events mostly consists of contacting towers and agreeing upon when we will be able to ring during the day. Our events will currently be small enough that we will not need to have timetabled slots (like at the RWNYC), but this may be necessary as the YCRA grows.

Events are run by our mentors, who will adhere to our safeguarding policy and code of conduct. These documents are currently being reviewed, but will soon be available on our documents page.

Upcoming events

Below is a list of the events we currently have planned.

Spring event: 23rd April 2022

The YCRA is visiting Bristol on the 23rd April 2022. As we want to make our events better and better each time, we've listened to the feedback from our Birmingham event and in the morning will have multiple towers open at the same time. Groups will tour the towers together and we will have a central meeting point where everyone can meet up over lunch. In the afternoon, groups will ring at another tower before we all end our day at St Mary Redcliffe.

The day will start at 10.00 am in the city centre, with it ending approximately 16:15 at the conclusion of Redcliffe ringing. Once we know how many to expect, we will send a final itinerary to everyone so we all know what we are doing!

The map below shows some of the towers you might ring at. You will not get to ring at all of these towers, as there is not enough time in the day but you will get the chance to ring at at least 4 towers during the day, including Redcliffe!
