'The Music Makers' the locally based team of handbell ringers
local Handbell Ringing Team, we have regular practices and are available
for small concerts, fundraising events and 'hands on' events (where everyone
can have a go) for local interested organisations.
We are always looking for different ways to bring the art of Handbell tune ringing to the community.
We use a simple system of music based on the traditional number system used for hundreds of years by church bell ringers.
Our next event is at Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School on the 7th December. A Rally from midday to 5.00pm. followed by a concert in the evening from 7.00pm. to approximately 8-45. The concert is open to the public and doors will be open from 6-30pm. The teams in the concert have been specially chosen to show a good representation of handbell tune ringing in this region and includes the schools own lunchtime team.
Entry will be by ticket at the door £2 and £1 concessions and children.
Anybody interested can contact Cathy Nettle (team leader) on 01507 490 956 please leave a message if I'm not at home!
