A new exhibition at the Treasure House, Beverley, looks at the fascinating world of church bell ringing, researched by members of the Beverley and District Ringing Society and the Beverley Town Handbell Ringers.
The sound of church bells is iconic to Britain and this exhibition celebrates this very familiar part of daily life, from the resurgence of ringers after the Second World War to the work being undertaken by the local bell repair fund and from how bells are cast to bell ringing practice times at local churches.
The exhibition opens on Saturday, 25 June and coincides with the church open day of Beverley St Mary’s, which includes trips up into the tower and the priest’s room.
Workshops for adults and children in handbell ringing will be held at the Treasure House throughout the summer.
