About Us

The Barfield Handbell Ringers are one of the biggest handbell orchestras in the south-east of England. Our 16 members play 5½ octaves of bells, 3 octaves of handchimes and other instruments like Belleplates. We were founded in 1965 – you can see more of our history on a separate page.

Would you like to book Barfield for an event? Contact details are on the booking page.

Our latest CD is still available. It’s named after the conditions in which most of our ringing takes place: Between the Chatter! Among the pieces are Ketelbey’s In a Persian Market, Brahms’s strenuous Hungarian Dance no. 5 and Scott Joplin’s rarely-played Gladiolus Rag. Email our Secretary for a copy – details on the booking page.
