<p>The Beverley Town Handbell Ringers was formed in February, 1981 and, by the loan of a set of old disused bells from Elland in West Yorkshire, were able to set about raising the funds to buy the present &lsquo;long set&rsquo; purchased in August, 1983.</p><p>They play on a set of 137 Whitechapel bells which cover a range of five chromatic octaves. Using some of the 60 duplicated and triplicated bells permits the execution of the fast chromatic runs.</p><p>The ten ringers, four treble, four tenor and two bass, ring &lsquo;off table&rsquo; in a traditional &lsquo;Yorkshire Style&rsquo; and are directed and conducted by John Atkinson.</p><p>At the festival they will be performing a concert with an opportunity for audience participation and an insight into the bells and the ringing style.</p><p>They will be playing a varied selection of light classical and modern pieces, each lasting no longer than five minutes many of which are well known marches and waltzes.</p>
