 Welcome to Hampstead Norreys Handbell Ringers

Our History

Team of handbell ringers formed in March 2003.
In Sept 2003 we were presented with an ‘Awards for All’ grant and purchased a 2-octave set of Whitechapel Bells.
A Chromatic set of 12 hand-chimes was added to our portfolio in 2004.
Upon receipt of a further grant, we were able to add a further octave of bells to our range and we now play a 3 -octave set (36 bells).
This expansion allows us to play a wider range of music - from classics to pops.

The Team 

Currently we have 10 Handbell Ringers, playing a total of 36 bells.
In addition, we play a set of hand-chimes, which adds a lovely soft and distinctive tone to the music.

The group practice once a week, on Wednesday evenings, under the tutorledge of our resident conductor, Thelma Crossley. 


We perform at many  different types of f unctions,  i ncluding, concerts, church  s ervices,  weddings, carol services and social events. If you are interested and would like to discuss the possibility of us playing at your event please contact us
