The day is being led by Jonathan Franklin and methods rung will be 'Project Pickled Egg' Methods... The 'core 7' methods. (for those who may not have come across them before, they are below)
 
The day is for anyone wishing to ring surprise major, whether starting out on Cambridge. moving onto Yorkshire, or well into the depths of this area. Experienced S Major ringers will be most welcome, as this means less experienced ringers can be given a good practice on S Major; furthermore, the more advanced S Major methods can be rung.
 
If you want to ring a specific method, whether Cambridge or Cornwall - come ready to ring it!

The 'core 7' methods:
Cambridge traditional starting point, well known, logical extension from Cambridge Minor
Yorkshire same above work and lead end order, well known, not too different below
Cornwall 8ths place method and new lead end order, musical, easy to ring and conduct
Superlative classic, double method, introduces turning round not at front or back and the technique of counting five pull dodges
Bristol

more difficult, but learnable in bite-sized chunks, introduces a wrong place method and new blue line features, much loved classic

Lessness popular Uxbridge above work, familiar features below, musical plain course, new lead end order
London wrong hunting below and above the treble, changing direction in spliced, much more
