New handbell team for beginners

every Wednesday. Taster session Wed 14 Sept

Have you ever heard handbells being played and thought you would like to try this lovely activity? Or perhaps you have never heard handbells and would like the opportunity to hear and try them for yourself. If so, Barfield Handbell Ringers from Thatcham have the answer: a new handbell team for beginners.

Under the guidance of their musical director you will be able to: - Learn to ring music on handbells - Discover the special techniques for varying the sound of the bells - Enjoy making music with a small group. There will be opportunities to play with the established team of Barfield Handbell Ringers and also, as progress is made, to join the full Barfield team for those who wish to do so.

There will be a taster session on Wednesday 14 September with weekly practices thereafter for those who would like to continue. For more information, e-mail dianne@barfield.org.uk or just come along on 14 September and give it a try.
