St Mary Redcliffe – Bell tower tour and bell ringing demonstration

St Mary Redcliffe, Redcliffe Way, Redcliffe, Bristol, BS1 6RA

 

St Mary Redcliffe church was once described by Queen Elizbeth I as “the fairest, goodliest, and most famous parish church in England”, although that was some time ago.

IOA SW branch has been kindly invited for a tour of the newly refurbished bell tower as well as a demonstration of bell ringing during a weekly practice session.

You may get a go on a bell as well if you’re lucky.

The tower contains a total of 15 bells, one bell dating from as early as 1622, cast by Purdue, and two cast by Thomas I Bilbie of the Bilbie family from Chew Stoke in 1763. The remainder were cast by John Taylor & Co at various dates.

Spaces are limited to 15, please book in advance on the EventBrite page https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/institute-of-acoustics-south-west-branch-st-mary-redcliffe-tickets-45643037554

A second visit will be run if there is suitable demand.
