Open Evening in the Tower @ St. Marys Church, Hitchin Street, SG7 5AE
May 8 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

St Mary’s Church Tower. 7.30-9.00pm. Meeting by Peter’s Door at the foot of the tower to the left of the main door.

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 space is small, tickets are limited to 12.

There is no charge but you must pick up a ticket from the Community Centre.
