Holy Trinity Handbell Ringers
Holy Trinity Handbell Ringers meet on an informal basis to rehearse as required for church services and other performances, combining on occasion with a team from St Andrew’s Church, Shottery. They ring a set of Malmark handbells, comprising two chromatic octaves, by number or by notation, depending on the team. Anyone is welcome, regardless of musical ability, but a sense of rhythm is a great help.
Since being re-established in 2012, they have received requests to perform for a sheltered housing complex, a nursery school, the RSC, St Andrew’s church play, a confirmation service led by the Bishop of Coventry, in Stratford town centre at Christmas, at Shipston Proms for Benjamin Britten’s ‘Noye’s Fludde’ with the Orchestra of the Swan, and at the Nine Lessons and Carols service at St Laurence, Bidford with a rock band, bagpipers, recorders, mandolin, full church choir and organ. Not bad for an informal group, half of whom have never before played a musical instrument.
