Around 100 people from across Suffolk will be ringing at Beccles Bell Tower ahead of an annual meeting on April 22.
They will be celebrating the achievements over the past year of the Suffolk Guild of Ringers whose 700 members coordinate church bell ringing throughout 200 towers in the county.
They will also be ringing at other towers in the Waveney and East Suffolk area including Bungay, Barsham and Brampton.
The annual meeting is part of the rich 250 plus year old tradition of bell ringing in Suffolk.
Alan Stanley, chairman of the Suffolk Guild of Ringers, said: 'Bell ringing is still flourishing across Suffolk and we know that local communities value their bells being rung for Sunday service, and celebrations such as weddings. We hope to see around 100 ringers at our annual meeting.'
