Ash Wednesday: Lent begins

Clapper Chaos

Saturday 17th November 7.30pm

Handbell ringing in St John’s Church. Tickets £5 at the door in aid of St John’s Church Development Funds.

Clapper Chaos is a handbell group based in Poole and consists of four members – Tim Rose, Sas Watson, Fiona White and Eleanor Wallace. Between them they play 36 bells (3 chromatic octaves) and 25 handchimes (2 chromatic octaves).  The set of bells were refurbished in 2012 by Mr Ian Hayes of Okehampton and since added to expanding the range from 2 to 3 octaves. All music arrangements are unique and arranged by the group; each is carefully orchestrated with bell swaps and sharing to achieve the fullest score possible.  You will not hear them played by any other group!  We play a variety of music from classical to pop and Disney.  
Watch their performance of ‘Walking in the Air.’  We are not responsible for content of other websites. 

Over the years various members have come and gone from the group. Tim and Sas have been in the group since it began in the summer of 2009.  Fiona joined us January 2014 and Eleanor in January 2017.  We are not like the usual handbell team because we combine ringing styles, we use a combination of 4, 5 or 6 in hand and off the table.
