Change ringing is the art of ringing a set of tuned bells in a tightly controlled manner to produce precise variations in their successive striking sequences, known as "changes".
Anyone can become a ringer; it has a broad appeal to musicians, mathematicians, church goers, people who like to be part of a team, people who like to learn, people who want to help our heritage live on and people who like a little drink or a piece of cake after some light exercise
If you have never rung a church bell we will help you learn. Whether you are a lapsed or an experienced ringer we will help you progress. Ringing is for everyone, so if you want to get to a certain proficiency and stay there that's fine too - a team needs everyone!
