The bells at Chichester Cathedral will be run to celebrate the birth of Prince George of Cambridge.

Between 2pm and 3pm on Friday, July 26, the cathedral ringers will ring a quarter peal of Cambridge Surprise Major.

This will involve eight bells, and the quarter peal will take about three-quarters of an hour to complete; it also takes about a quarter of an hour either side of the piece to ring up and ring down the bells, said a cathedral spokesman.

An Observer reporter will be there to record a clip of the peal, which will be put on our website tomorrow.
