Pictures of Open Rehearsal Session of the Alton Handbell Ringers

Moments of intense concentration by our visitors, captured on camera by Alan, as Team members helped them to produce a very creditable rendition of ‘Like a River Glorious’.

As part of the National Get Creative Festival being celebrated as part of Cheadle Arts Festival, we invited people to:

    *Find out about tune ringing on handbells*

    *See how we rehearse*

    *See how different techniques produce different sounds*

    *Have a go themselves*

The Get Creative Festival is a national celebration of everything creative, taking place across the UK from 17-25 March 2018. The annual festival is a merger of the previous Get Creative Weekend and Voluntary Arts Festival - now joined together to make one huge nationwide event.  Get Creative Festival shines a light on all the great cultural activity that takes place right across the UK on a regular basis and encourages people to try their hand at something new and creative.
