Welcome to the website of the bell ringers of St James, Didsbury.
We ring the bells at St James for Sunday morning worship, for weddings and for special occasions (New Year, Royal Wedding, Armistice Day). We practice every Tuesday evening starting at 7.30pm, followed by a "technical debrief" in a local pub.
Change ringing is one of those activities that passers-by often hear but give little thought to how that sound is produced.
There is much more to learning to ring than you might think and this most traditional of English traditions has challenges and rewards that anyone will enjoy.
Change ringing has a great social side and is organised at local level (Lancashire Association of Change Ringers) and national level (Central Council of Bell Ringers).
