Quarter Peal for The Platinum Jubilee

The Audlem Bellringers will attempt a quarter peal of Grandsire Doubles as a celebration of The Platinum Jubilee, at 7pm on Thursday evening.

Most ringing consists of short pieces (5-10) minutes each but on special occasions we will ring for a longer time.

In a quarter peal each bell must sound at least 1250 times and will take about 45 minutes.

Grandsire is one of the standard change ringing and uses a series of mathematical permutations, it was devised in 1650. The first five bells will constantly change places and the heaviest bell, the tenor, will always sound in sixth place.

There will be a normal practice afterwards.
