Durham University Society of Change Ringers
The Durham University Society of Change Ringers was founded in 1959 and originally existed alongside the Durham College Society until the two merged in the 1960s.
The Society practices on Wednesday nights at St. Brandon’s Church, Brancepeth, 7:30pm to 9:00pm, and rings for Sunday service there each week during University term time. We also regularly ring at other towers in Durham and the surrounding area. We happily welcome ringers of all standards, including complete beginners, who we are happy to teach. We organise transport to Brancepeth from Durham – to attend a practice please contact Elizabeth ([email protected]).
The Society goes on termly tours, holds regular socials, and can often be found in the pub after (and/or before) ringing. We also host the annual DUSCR dinner where past and present members of the society get together for a tour and black tie dinner.
