Richmond Ringers have an open afternoon as part of the Festival on 7 June when they hope that, although entry is free, visitors will donate generously to their appeal for funds to do a complete refurbishment of their tower with new bells and frame and restoration of their historic bells in a form which enables them to be viewed and enjoyed.

However they also have a major fundraising event in the form of a cycle ride from Richmond, Surrey to  Richmond, Yorkshire during which they will also take in a fair amount of ringing at towers across the country.
