For businesses we make a charge of £40 per performance (plus travelling expenses for long distances).
For voluntary or charitable groups a guideline donation around £30 is suggested (plus travel expenses for long distances).
We enjoy performing at events in exchange for a fee/donation to our handbell fund. We do need quite a bit of space (10 by 12 feet) for ourselves, the tables on which we place foam padding, to protect the bells and our music stands. We can ring with fewer ringers, and hence less space is needed, but even so there are times when we might not be able to get a band together for the date you suggest. We also need reasonably easy car access to deliver our equipment (the bells are quite heavy). We can provide the tables if necessary.
We prefer indoors but will consider outside events; this is not ideal as when the wind blows and the rain comes down our music blows away along with the sound!
The diary page lists our current engagements. Our busiest time is at Christmas so enquire early. To make an enquiry please email me. I look forward to hearing from you.
