About this course:

This half day course shows new and experienced teachers how to support their students and develop the necessary skills for ringing changes. 

 You will learn through a mixture of practical and classroom sessions

  • Standing behind
  • Plain Hunting
  • Teaching early methods
  • Using unusual methods in the tower
  • Ringing doubles variations

The practical exercises approach learning in small structured steps and are delivered in a way that is entertaining for the new ringer, with teaching theory sessions, running practices, team building and how to motivate and retain your ringers.

The practical sessions move on to concentrate on the development of change ringing skills using exercises and unusual methods to aid learning. Delegates will ring methods such as original minor, treble bob hunt, spliced touches and other exercises.

The transition from Plain Hunt to Plain Bob Doubles and Plain Bob Minor is broken down into several simpler, shorter steps, making the jump into change ringing both more gradual and understandable to the new ringer.

The theory sessions turn the spotlight on developing leadership skills.

This course is now open for general booking.

Roger Booth


Now living in Hampshire after spending 40 years in London, Roger has held various posts within local ringing societies. For a long time Roger was a member of the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers and served on its Ringing Centres, Towers & Belfries, Redundant Bells and Administrative Committees. As a Chartered Surveyor, Roger combined his professional career with pleasure and played a leading role in major bell restoration projects at Bermondsey. Isle of Dogs, Limehouse, Rotherhithe and Walworth, as well as many smaller projects, and the transfer of redundant rings of bells from St Stephen Ealing to Aberdeen Cathedral and Homerton to Stone next to Dartford. He therefore has a wealth of knowledge about tower maintenance issues. To help ensure there were adequate numbers of ringers to ring these restored bells, Roger then turned his attention to issues of recruitment and training. Roger is currently a member of the ART Management Committee and an ART Tutor. He is particularly interested in initiatives to improve the quality of teaching and make more effective use of trainers through the use of simulators.
