We are a friendly bunch of people who climb the spiral staircase several times a week to ring the fabulous bells of the Town Church.

Although a small group we range from 12 to 75 years old and all enjoy the mental and physical challenge of ringing the bells.  Bell music is pattern based, rather than tunes, and we have to memorise the shapes of the music before standing up to ring the patterns; weaving the bells around each other to constantly change the order in which the bells are struck.

Our Youth Bell Ringing Scholarships launched in 2020 and our scholars are a pleasure to ring with and are developing their ringing skills very nicely.  We have limited space for new scholars who should be able to ring called changes or methods to a Sunday Service standard and should be below the age of 18.  Enquires can be sent to townchurchbellringers@gmail.com

If you would like to come and have a look and see what it is all about you are welcome to attend our practice on Thursday evenings, 7.30-9.15pm.  We are always happy to show new people around the tower and give you a go on a rope with no requirement to commit yourself to joining.

We welcome group tours of the tower on other evenings, please contact us to arrange.  We would usually take 1.5hours for a tower tour and would struggle to accommodate more than 12 people at once.

 

 

Escape Rooms

The bell tower is a fantastic setting for our charity escape rooms which fund development projects in the tower and our Youth Scholarship fund.

Thank you to all the teams who have supported our last room.   We hope to have the next up and running soon and we will advertise here and on our facebook page.
