On the weekend of the 27th and 28th September there will be a two day village festival.

St.George’s Church Vernet-Les-Bains this year received ten bells from Taylor’s Foundry in Loughborough.

If you are interested in learning English change ringing we would be glad to see you.

The ten new bells at St George’s are the first change-ringing bells in France, only the third ring-able peal on mainland Europe, and mainland Europe’s first ring of ten. They were cast by John Taylor & Co at their foundry in Loughborough.

There will be a formal ceremony at the monument  to the Entente Cordiale with French and English dignitaries present. There will also be the blessing of the bells, a picnic in the park, Morris and Catalan dancing in the square, an English tea party, concerts and more besides.
