Bingham Bell Ringers
Church bells have formed part of life in this country since the Middle Ages and are the biggest and loudest musical instruments in the world. Their sound can be heard miles away from their towers.
Bells are rung to call people to worship, to celebrate happy occasions and commemorate important events. They are also rung simply for the enjoyment of hearing their sound. A set of bells is called a ‘ring’ or a ‘peal’. At Bingham we have a ring of eight bells. Most church towers have bells and ringers are welcome to visit and ring at other places.
Bingham bell ringers are a friendly group and new or returning ringers are always welcome. Almost anyone from the age of 11 can learn to ring. You don’t need to be strong and you don’t need to be a musician to take part in this very English tradition.
At Bingham we practice on Friday evenings and we ring on Sunday mornings too. If you’re interested in learning more about bell ringing then contact Andrew on (01949) 836329 or email Andrew via this link: Tower Captain.
