This course is for anyone interested in wanting to learn how to ring church bells as an opportunity to connect with the music, architecture and communities of Devon’s towns and villages.
Bell ringing is an activity where you can be part of a team, learn a new skill and have a bit of fun along the way. Who can do it? Anyone! Apart from just learning the basics of how to ring a church bell, there are many more aspects to it – rising, lowering and Devon call changes. It will all become clearer as we start the course. We work at your pace. There are no set targets. After talking about what you want to achieve from the sessions, we then put a plan together. You will learn how to ring a church bell – and that is very easily done in the six weeks that we have together – and then we can look at what comes next. There will be further opportunities after the course to join with the team of Dartmouth bell ringers in a social setting and further develop your skills. Session 1 of this course will offer an informal meet and orientation to give students a flavour of bell ringing and a chance to decide if they wish to carry on learning to ring the bells in Sessions 2-7.
This course will be held over 7 Tuesdays
Session 1: An informal meet and orientation will meet Tuesday 15th October
Sessions 2-7 will meet Tuesdays on: 29th October, 5th, 12th, 19th, 26th November and 3rd December.
