Most people will be familiar with the sound of church bells ringing out on a Sunday morning – but have you ever wondered what REALLY goes on there? How do the ringers make music? How do they control the bells? What is change ringing anyway? This is your chance to find out!
The Bell Tower Ringers are holding an ‘open house’ at York’s Holy Trinity Church. There’ll be ringing demonstrations, people on hand to tell you all about it and even the chance to have a go yourself. So come and find out what it’s really all about. It won’t be what you expect!
The church is home to a lovely ring of 8 bells which were donated by Laith Reynolds. They were cast by the Whitechapel Bell Foundry in 1982 and consecrated by Archbishop Peter Carnley on Easter Day, 7 April.
