Morpeth Clock Tower Bellringers are a group of enthusiastic volunteers who ring the bells in Morpeth Clock Tower. We are the current custodians of a more than 300-year-old tradition of bellringing in the English full-circle style in Morpeth Clock Tower.
Located just off the Market Place in the heart of town, the Clock Tower continues to play an integral role in modern civic life. We provide ringing for civic events at both local and national level, including: Morpeth Northumbrian Gathering Day, Morpeth Summer Fair Day, Remembrance Sunday, Armistice Day and New Year.
To ensure the continuation of this English custom, we actively engage with the local community to promote our art and to recruit future generations. We train people of all ages (from 9+) and from all walks of life. We like to maintain good associations with local youth groups such as Scouts, Guides and Boys’ Brigade from which we recruit new band members.
