Cheadle Arts Festival
Alton Handbell Ringers were invited to ring at Cheadle Arts Festival at their Afternoon Tea event in the Guild Hall from 2pm.
We were only able to provide enough members to ring 12 bell pieces. However, what we lacked in numbers we made up with enthusiasm.
Cheadle U3A Ukulele Band played 3 sets with a very varied and lively programme. There were sea shanties, 1920s songs and a Cliff Richard medley to name but a few.
Cheadle Community Choir also performed 2 sets of beautiful singing. It was lovely to see a very wide age range amongst their members, all performing really well. They sang a wide range of songs with some amazing harmonies.
Alton Handbell Ringers’ pieces were enthusiastically received. We rang a mix of tunes from Shepherds Hey to Pomp and Circumstance, finishing with Rule Britannia.
There were delicious cakes...
