Lambourn - at the heart of the valley of the racehorse
You are here: Lambourn Chimers
Lambourn Chimers was started following a talk about the history of handbell ringing at the local WI. The speaker suggested that perhaps he could run a workshop, if anyone was interested. Several WI members went along and then four of us started to play regularly, with borrowed handbells, in late 2002.
Since then, the group has grown to nine ringers, we have obtained lottery funding to purchase bells and bought other equipment from local charitable donations and our own fundraising efforts. We also joined the Handbell Ringers of Great Britain (HRGB) and have attended a number of their rallies, picking up hints and tips along the way. Initially we played by numbers, but those of us with no musical background have now learned to read music.
We play at local functions and now have a varied range of music in different styles to offer.
If you would be interested in joining us to make music or would like to make a booking, contact us at
