RW Centenary

Changes to Programme

Please note that there are some changes from the details published in the "Centenary Day Guide" sent out with the tickets. These are:

Dean's Yard, Westminster Abbey, Central Hall & St Margaret's

  • The TUC are holding a March and Rally in London on 26 March. We have held discussions with the Metropolitan Police regarding this, to minimise the effect to Ringing World customers. The message from the police is very clear and straightforward - everyone should use St James' Park underground station for the Parliament Square based activities, then the actions of the TUC will not have much effect. It should be noted that Westminster station may well be closed either totally or partly.
  • There will be road closures and traffic restrictions around Westminster in place from 8am and these will remain in place all day - there will be no vehicular access to the Abbey, Central Hall, St Margaret's or Deans Yard at any time. This map, provided by the police, shows the extent of the road closures.

The Inspired by Bells exhibition will close at 12:30 pm, not 6:00 pm. If you wish to visit both this and the carillon recital, it might be advisable to visit the Gallery first.
