Illogan Hand Bells







Old bells, new ringers


Handbells have been rung in Illogan for at least 90 years. Our particular team ‘ Illogan Handbell Ringers’ was formed in 2013. We are privileged to use a one and a half octave set of old English bells owned by St. Illogan church and cast by Wm. Blews and Sons in Birmingham over 100 years ago. The bells were fully refurbished and re-tuned at London’s old Whitechapel Bell Foundry in 2015. The original set of 12 bells has since been expanded by 13 more to give us a full two octave range allowing us to explore a much wider range of music.

We meet on Weds. afternoons from 2.00 – 4.00pm, normally in St. Illogan Church, If you are interested, you’re very welcome to come along on a Wednesday to see what we do but best check with Frances (01209 217918) beforehand to make sure it’s not a week for meeting elsewhere!.
