Cirencester Parish Hand Bell Ringers

Cirencester Parish Hand Bell Ringers were formed in 1990, after the bells had been refurbished the year before. Our first performance was in a concert at All Hallows Church in South Cerney. Since then we have performed in many varied venues including churches, local clubs, care and nursing homes, shopping malls and even a private house! When entertaining, we sometimes offer the audience the opportunity to “have a go.”

As members of Hand Bell Ringers of Great Britain, South West Region, we have attended many rallies and concerts as far afield as Okehampton and Tewkesbury Abbey. In 2009 we performed at the National Rally held at the Royal Agricultural College in Cirencester.

In order to ring a greater variety of music, additional bells were purchased in 1995; so we now have 3 full octaves. Our repertoire is wide and we are available to perform throughout the year. We endeavour to introduce new pieces each year, but from time to time bring back old favourites.
