What is Bell Ringing (and the MUGS)

I’m kind of expecting that if you’re looking at this site, you already have at least a little bit of a clue about Church Bell Ringing. If you really don’t know what this is all about, first see some of the links from the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers in the panel on the right, then come and see us and we’ll show you how it’s done.


The MUGs welcome students at any of the educational institutions in the Manchester area to become full members, but are also greatly involved with other towers and ringers. We are a teaching tower, from learning to handle a bell, right up to how to get 80% of the way through a peal of spliced surprise major before firing it out. All abilities are truly welcome. 


The MUGs are based at Sacred Trinity and the Salford Arms (see the map on the Where tab). During term time we practice ringing between 7pm and 8.30pm and drinking from 8.30pm onwards every Tuesday. There are also lots of other opportunities for ringing and drinking at other towers and pubs. We also ring for Sunday Service at Sacred Trinity, and often Manchester Cathedral, Fallowfield, or Didsbury. 


We have also had some really good foreign tours recently, like Wales, York, Oldham, and Kent, and have one planned in October.

Hi folks

Congratulations on finding my little spot on the Internet.

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. 



Hugs and kisses,
