Activity Group:

Belleplates (handbells)


A small, friendly group learning to play the belleplates, a lighter and smaller form of handbells  that produce a lovely sound.
For a number of years now we’ve been lucky enough to have Tony take up the baton on alternate Wednesdays. Under his guidance we have extended both our musical knowledge and our repertoire to include classical, folk, pop, and hymn music, while maintaining a sense of fun

Where and when

We meet at Harborough Community Church every Wed except 3rd of month.

Other information

A great way to exercise the mind, improve hand/eye coordination, keep the laughter muscles working and make some lovely music. New members welcome.
