The Supper Concert Tradition

St Mary’s Handbell Ringers first Supper Concert took place in 1988 on the natural theme of ‘Bells’. We have sought to produce an entertainment based on a new theme each year.

At these ‘supper concerts’ we have always emphasised the enjoyment of the unique sound of bells with a mixture of well loved and amusing readings on a common theme, followed by a good tea or supper.
