Welcome

Eastbourne's bellringers are looking for new people to teach 

- whether you are 9 years old or 90!

 Discover why over 40,000 people in Britain alone practise this ancient and enjoyable art in over 5,000 church towers.

 Bellringing is a team activity that stimulates the brain, helps keep you fit and it also makes a glorious sound.
 Do you have to be mathematical, musical, church going or strong? No, none of them although some are.

Bellringing is well within the capabilities of most people.
 
Initial learning usually takes several weeks after which  you can begin to ring with the rest of the band. 
People normally practise once a week and learn to ring for Sundays.
