Festival Square in Edinburgh would be an ideal spot for a mass of cyclists to turn out for 08.00 on the morning of the 27 July 2012. (All ringing their bells for 3 minutes - that could get some attention)
Friday 27 July 2012 will be no ordinary morning. At 8am on the first day of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, 'Work No.1197: All the bells in a country rung as quickly and as loudly as possible for three minutes' by Turner Prize-winning artist and musician Martin Creed, will be performed throughout the UK.
The nation is invited to ring thousands of bells at the same time, whether schools bells, church bells, town hall bells, bicycle bells or door bells.
To make this performance happen, the All the Bells team invites bell ringers and those interested in ringing bells to sign up and get involved in the performance, alongside thousands of people across the country. By ringing any kind of bell – hand bell, church bell, bicycle bell, door bell – you will be part of the performance and involved in welcoming the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games to the UK.
To sign up to ring a bell, go to AllTheBells.com
Everyone who signs up to take part in the project will receive an exclusive Martin Creed ringtone available from March 2012.
