Next Talk – Friday 15th December:

Festive Bells – more than just for ChristmasAndrew Young

10.30 am St Martin’s House
7 Peacock Lane LE1 5PZ

Andrew says … I have been ringing church bells since 1973 when I learned to ring in a small village in Oxfordshire, taught by the vicar. I have now rung at over 2000 churches, mostly in England, but also in America. I have been ringing at St Peter’s church in Oadby since we moved to Leicestershire in 1997.  I am tower captain at Oadby, and ringing master of the Market Harborough District of the Leicester Diocesan Guild.  I will be talking about bells around the world, but focusing on how we ring them in England – so called ‘full-circle ringing’.
