Practice Schedule

The Society practises in the City of London or at Southwark on Tuesday evenings between 6:30 and 8 pm unless otherwise stated. Drinking afterwards takes place at Williamson's Tavern, 1 Groveland Court (unless the practice is at Southwark Cathedral when drinking takes place at The Wheatsheaf.

Due to the ongoing situation with Covid-19, there are a number of things you can do to help:

  1. Take a lateral flow test on the day of the practice and don’t come if you test positive or feel unwell.
  2. Use the NHS app whilst you are at the practice or in the pub.
  3. Use the hand sanitizer that will be in the tower (but please let it dry before you touch the ropes so you don’t upset the steeplekeepers!).
  4. We would encourage you to wear a facemask where you feel able to do so.

We have maintained attendance records for practices for many years so we already have a track & trace mechanism in place. If you test positive for Covid following attendance at a practice you are encouraged to let the secretary know so that he can, in confidence, inform others who attended the practice.

Business Meetings (unless otherwise stated) take place in Williamson's Tavern, 1 Groveland Court in a downstairs room. This is normally signposted at the back of the pub. From time to time other practices are held in the name of the Society outside London. These will also be advertised here. They are either run by the Master or by someone they have appointed.

Access to towers

  • Parish churches: Meet under the tower
  • St Paul's Cathedral: Meet by the steps at the front of the Chapter House, i.e. facing the Cathedral on its north side, next to Paul Café, from where groups will be escorted up the tower at 6:20, 6:40 and 7:00pm.
  • Southwark Cathedral: Use the door on the north west side.
