Ring with us

Who we are?

We are a diverse bunch of ringers, include undergraduates, graduates, hangers-on and the occasional mascot and we would love to have you (and your friends) come and join us to ring.   The MUGCR has two practice nights during the week, and ring for services on Sundays.

Gerald hosts NUA

If you've never rung before, we are happy to teach you.   If you have, there is ringing for for all levels.

So now that you know you are welcome, what next?


Gerald's "Patented" Guide to Becoming a MUG

  1. Take a good browse of the rest of this website and find out a little bit more about us
  2. Make contact with us via email, if possible, to let us know that you are coming via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  3. Work out where our towers are.  Both are easy to get to via public transport and a small amount of walking
  4. Turn up at either our Monday or Tuesday practice.   Aim to arrive a few minutes early to get introductions out of the way early.
  5. Our ringing master or the MUG running the practice should introduce themselves and will help you to get a good ring
  6. Allow time after practice, as we regularly socialise afterwards.    Quiz night experts are especially valued.

News from Gerald ...

Hi folks

Congratulations on finding my little spot on the Internet. I've put my comments in reverse date order to save you the pain of scrolling down so much. Any time you are up in the bell tower, do leave some beer for me ....food might be nice too as there's not much in the way of acacia, mimosa, and wild apricot trees in Salford. Keep checking back for updates!


Sunday October 27th 2019

I'm afraid I have to report that the ringers at Sacred Trinity left me locked outside my own tower on Tuesday...to keep warm I had to sample a few Sambuca shots and I was discovered this Sunday morning lying upside with a hangover. Pleased to report I am now back in my tower and am contemplating the forthcoming NUA in Birmingham, Friday 8th - Sunday 10th November. I was excluded from the boat race last year because I couldn't hold a pint glass in my hooves - hopefully my recent Sambuca experience will help with the socialising this year.

Update October 22nd 2019

Well apparently there are giraffes in Australia:

 Oz Giraffe

Update October 21st 2019

Bit of a sad day today as my mate Mark is heading back to Australia. Can't image why as there are no giraffes there...anyway here's the last picture of Mark on British soil (ok concrete) ...for now:

Laters Mark  




Update October 2019

Once again had my peace disturbed by those humans ringing something called Cane Bridge I think. Jezabelle thought the ringing was a bit lumpy but she's funny like that.

It's getting cold now as winter approaches and they insist on turning the heating off when they leave which makes for a few chilly nights. Oh well I'll have to drink more of the beer those ringers have left behind. Oh yes and the Easter eggs that they haven't eaten and are now out of date. Lucky we giraffes have such a strong constitution.

Update April 2019

I now have a companion in the form of an inflatable giraffe called Jezzabelle. If ever a name was more appropriate.... I have spent many happy hours in her company ;-)


April 2018

My good friend Sam introduced me to the MUGs back in 2016, and I've not left since.   I spend a great deal of time hanging around our home tower, Sacred Trinity in Salford. I like ringing, dancing and a good pint. I just need a companion.... :-(
