Ring for the King

Ring for the King

We’re Recruiting

Would you like to be a part of the King’s coronation celebrations in May? Want to meet new people and learn a rewarding new skill?

At Ab Kettleby, we’re actively looking to train new church bell ringers who can join the team, not only to Ring for the King’s coronation this year, but to develop a lifelong hobby combining gentle exercise, mental challenges and team work, along with musical and architectural appreciation. It’s a great way to become involved in the local community. Once you’ve mastered the basics, it’s a hobby you can take just about anywhere, and you can be sure of a warm welcome at every tower you visit.

No previous experience required! You don’t need to be physically strong to ring church bells. There is no upper or lower age limit – you just need to be able to reach the ropes. Our experienced teachers will guide you through the learning process, starting with one-to-one sessions on a single bell, before joining with others where you will ring as part of the band. 

Interested? We’d love to welcome you to a practice night so you can see what it’s all about. We practice every Wednesday between 19:30 and 20:45 – St James’ Church, Church Lane, Ab Kettleby. Or drop us a line to find out more!
