Exhibition Ringing by London's St-Paul's Cathedral Guild - 13 Aug 2022

As part of Perpignan's 20th International Carillon Festival,  St George's is proud to welcome the ringers of St Paul's Cathedral in London to Vernet on the weekend of 13th - 14th August 2022.

These highly-skilled ringers, who recently rang for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee service, will perform a special exhibition peal for the public in the only tower-campanile of France equipped with 10 English bells. You will be charmed by the magic and the secret of their expertise. 

The Guild will be ringing a full peal of 5000 changes on the Saturday morning, lasting about three hours. At the same time, there will explanations and an exhibition.

On the Sunday, St Paul's ringers will join with the Vernet ringers to provide ringing before and after the 10:00 service.  

Admission is free and open to the public. We hope to see you for this very special event!
