Enjoying Wimbledon but fancy a bit of bellringing to spice it up?
You need the Leeds Waterfront Festival this weekend 28 / 29 June.
The “Wombel” training bell will be there all weekend for the public to come and have a go.
It has been used recently at Dewsbury Minster Fest and at the media launch of the Yorkshire Festival Programme back in January. It went down a storm both times.
Tell your non ringing friends to get down to Thwaites Mill and have a go.
Wim Bell done.
Check out the YouTube film below.
Ant Smith sets out to learn bellringing in a month.
He goes to learn at Silsden (which just happens to be on Stage 2 of Le Tour de France in Yorkshire). His goal is to be good enough to ring at Bradford Cathedral within a month?
The film is entitled “Bellringing: It’s Harder Than It Looks”. Find out if it really was.
