THE CAERLEON MINISTRY AREA
St Cadoc’s Caerleon Bell Ringers
The Caerleon Festival is delighted to announce that bells will be rung out over the Festival Field by local bell ringers on the BIG FREE weekend. This will their first appearance at a Caerleon Festival – sure to bring joy to all who hear the bells rung or even to those who dare to give it a go……!
Demonstrations on the art of bell ringing, using a mobile tower, will be provided by the St. Cadoc’s Church bell ringers, supported by ringers from local towers in the area. There will also be opportunities throughout the weekend to try your hand at bell ringing.
The Charmborough mobile belfry has six bells that are rung in the same way as those in churches and cathedrals throughout the country. It offers a unique opportunity to see the workings of the bells close up.
Ringing is open to all ages from 9 to 90 and you don’t need to be mathematical or musical. It is open to people of all faiths or no faith.
Ringing is a fun, unique hobby that offers not only physical exercise, but also mental agility and working as part of a team.
