In Chicagoland for Memorial Day weekend? Itching to see some change ringing in action? Check out the fourth annual Illinois Bell Bash!
Hosted by the University of Chicago Guild of Change Ringers on Saturday, May 28th, guests may see and hear the bells in Mitchell Tower. Public tours will leave at 1 and 3 p.m. from the Reynolds Club Seal. Change ringing on unsilenced bells will take place throughout the day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., so swing by to take a tour or just listen!
And the fun continues the next day at St. Paul’s Church in Riverside. Practice and general ringing will commence at 11:30 a.m. and the unsilent practice will go from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
