|Ringers I - These are High School members of Southminster who have ringing experience, have shown their commitment to ringing and have been recommended by their previous director. They present a varied concert of sacred and concert works in a variety of venues. They tour abroad every two years for a three week period. |
The 2012 Tour will take our ringers to the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania, Hungary and Austria. The Southminster Ringers have taken bells to parts of the Czech Republic and to Romania and this tour will re-ignite some of the friendships and bonds started in years past!
