The University of London Society of Change Ringers (ULSCR) is the official society dedicated to change ringing in London universities and was founded just after the end of the Second World War. The objectives of the Society are the promotion of the art and science of change ringing[1] and ringing for church services.[2]

Membership of the Society is open to all past/present members/employees of the University of London and any other college in London.

Current activities[edit]

ULSCR ringing is based at St Olave's Church, Hart Street in the City of London (near Tower Hill Tube - District & Circle Lines).

Practices take place on Thursday evenings between 7:00pm and 8:30pm during term time and Sunday service ringing is from 10:15am until 11:00am on the 1st and 3rd Sundays in the month.

Ringing including some practices also takes place at various other towers in the London area, see Upcoming Events.

The society includes ringers of all standards from rounds and call changes to spliced Maximus ringers, and also teaches students with no previous experience of ringing. It has an active social calendar including outings, picnics and parties together with an annual dinner and ringing tour during the summer vacation. The ULSCR also attends the SUA competition each year.
