Home Who we are Handbell Ringing Group

Handbell Ringing Group

The first tuned handbells were developed by brothers Robert and William Cor in Aldbourne, Wiltshire, England, between 1696 and 1724.They were originally used to rehearse arrangements for tower bells without annoying the neighbours! St Clements handbells ringers haven’t been around quite that long; however, we have a group of committed rings who practice on Monday evenings. If you are interested in learning the art of handbell ringing and would like to learn some lovely arrangements, you will be made very welcome. We have been known to play the bells at concerts etc in Urmston and the locality. If you would like to have a go at handbell ringing, please just turn up on Friday evenings for  7.30 and we will be delighted to welcome you. If you prefer to contact someone first to have a chat then please feel free to call
