Description

A Brief History of Bellringing

As practised in this country, bellringing is a peculiarly English tradition – indeed it’s been described as ‘one of the sounds of England’. Find out more about the history of bellringing from veteran Castle Bromwich bellringer, Bill Dargue. Bill will recount the development of ‘The Exercise’, as it is quaintly known, with particular reference to Birmingham bell towers. After this talk, you’ll listen to the Christmas bells with a different ear.
