Jonathan and Angela have been away for some winter warmth in Oman, and they rang a quarter on Angela's mini-bells. Splendid!
Tina and I will be at the Ringing Roadshow 2022 on Sunday 4th September, launching Change-Ringing on Handbells (Volume 2: Advanced Techniques) as well as selling Volume 1 and mugs with the interlocking handbell design. We also look forward to talking to visitors about their experiences of learning to ring handbells (with or without our book).
The discounted prices for the books will be as follows.
Volume 1: £15 (normal price £20)
Volume 2: £20 (normal price £26)
Volumes 1 and 2 together: £32 (normal price £46)
You can see the mugs in the AlbanyQuadrant shop on Redbubble.com. The price at the Roadshow will be £7.50. There are two colours, light blue and light orange, the same as the covers of the books.
If you would like to reserve books or mugs, for collection at the Roadshow, please use the contact link at the bottom of the page. We will be able to take payments on the day in cash or using a card-reader. The deadline for advance orders is Monday 15th August.
There are 30 mugs of each colour, and when they're gone they're gone. We will take enough books to satisfy all advance orders, plus some extras.
These discounted prices only apply to books or mugs that are collected from the Roadshow. At any other time, books must be ordered from Amazon and mugs must be ordered from Redbubble.

On Saturday we had a handbell day in Tulloch, hosted by Peter Bevis and Helen McGregor. Nick Jones organised the ringing programme, and beforehand he and I had discussed the best 12-bell method to try as a step beyond Kent. As a result, when he sent out the schedule, several...
Our friend Elizabeth gave us a set of Christmas crackers that each have a mini-bell inside. The set comes with some simple tunes written out by numbers, for post-dinner tune-ringing fun. So we gave it a try, and managed to play a few tunes, with help from my sister...
Here is our (rather late) handbell roundup for November 2014......
Since completing our 8-spliced project last June, we have turned our attention to another spliced challenge - that of ringing Horton's 4 (Glasgow, Bristol, Belfast, London) in hand. Well. After some detours into other little projects and the odd handbell day.
The impetus to get started was provided by the...
After ringing a quarter of Bristol on the handbell day, we hatched a plan for Julia to come up from Penrith to ring a peal. It was the half term holiday down there (a week later than ours), so she was able to bring her daughters for an overnight trip. We gave...
