The Wombel of WimBellDon

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.

The film is entitled “Bellringing: It’s Harder Than It Looks”.  Find out if it really was.
