If you have ever fancied having a go at bell-ringing or wondered how it was done, this evening will give you the chance to find out. Access is fairly challenging—there are 44 worn steps in the spiral staircase, so appropriate footwear should be worn. No previous bell-ring experience is necessary.
Because the space is small, tickets are limited to 12. There is no charge but you must pick up a ticket from the Community Centre.
