Bell ringers to hold concert

Have your say

Handbell ringers are presenting a concert in Sheffield to support St Luke’s Hospice.

The event, involving Dronfield Handbell Ringers, will take place from 7pm on Saturday, March 16, at St James’ Church, Norton.

Dronfield Handbell Ringers ring on a two chromatic octave set of bells cast by Shaw of Bradford in the early 1900s, augmented several years ago to three octaves.

The ringers perform using a four-in-hand style, one of the oldest styles of handbell ringing, and very suitable for this range of bells.

Vic Cox, band leader, said: “We shall be performing our usual eclectic mix including works by Handel, Beethoven, and Grieg, as well as popular music, and even a little bit of jazz.

“Joining us will be guitarist Mark Gregory professional bassoonist Glyn Foley and the Norton Community Choir.”

Tickets are £5.00 for adults and £2.50 for children, including light refreshments.

They are available by emailing or can be bought on the door.
