We welcomed all 16 teams, their supporters and many of the ringing community to the historic city of York for the third annual Ringing World National Youth Contest.

As well as the Contest itself, which took place on the excellent light ring of eight at St Lawrence’s, we arranged a full programme for the day including ringing at four of the towers in the city centre (the 6 at St Olave’s, the 8s at St Martin’s and All Saints’ and the 10 at St Wilfrid’s), a mini-ring of 8, handbell workshops and a Treasure Hunt.
