In August, the Winchester Cathedral band takes a break and lends the Wednesday Practice Nights to some of the Districts. It is a golden opportunity to try these great bells (There are 14 of them!) among friends. In the past we have taken learners from our tower and they found it incredibly inspiring, even ones who were not yet expert enough to ring.
If you can’t make your own District’s event then it is worth contacting another District’s Ringing Master because many of them welcome extras, it depends on their anticipated numbers.
Please arrive on time – the door is locked once the practice begins.
This year the dates are:
|Wednesday 3rd||Alton and Petersfield District Practice 7.15 – 9.05|
|Wednesday 10th||Andover District Practice 7.15 – 9.05|
|Wednesday 17th||Portsmouth District Practice 7.15 – 9.05|
|Wednesday 24th||Christchurch and Southampton District Practice 7.15 – 9.05|
|Wednesday 31st||Winchester District Practice 7.15 – 9.05|
