Many of these are organised ‘on demand’, but others are open to all comers.  If you would like to attend a session/course, please contact the Ringing Centre and we will fit you in at an appropriate time.  Similarly, if you have any special requirements, which you think we might be able to help with, do get in touch.

In addition, there are regular ‘open tower’ sessions, at which the full-circle ringing and change ringing are explained and demonstrated to non-ringers.  Talks on bellringing to interested groups are also arranged: please contact us for further information.
