Update on ART Events and Coronavirus/COVID-19


Given the recent UK Government Advice, ART is postponing all scheduled courses and workshops with immediate effect.

We are not accepting new registrations for all events.  Those who have already registered for places are being contacted by the Event Organiser.

Delegates will be offered the choice of a refund or a voucher which they can use to transfer to a re-arranged course/workshop later in the year.

For more information, please contact the local organiser of the course you were hoping to attend, or the ART Events team (events@bellringing.org) who will be able to help.

In the meantime, please keep well and look after those around you.
