The Hand Bell Ringers of Great Britain (HRGB) was formed in 1967. The East Midlands region was the first of the eight regions to be formed and its inaugural meeting was held at St Wulfram’s Secondary Modern School, Grantham in April 1975. This region has 24 member groups of Handbell ringers. The region stretches from Northamptonshire in the south to Nottinghamshire in the north


Due to the ongoing impact of the Coronavirus restrictions, the Regional Team rehearsal sessions are suspended until further notice. If you are a Regional Team member, we will contact you when we have news of starting again. In the meantime, please look at your music so that when we do start again there should not be too much difficulty in picking up from where we left off. Keep well and hopefully we can meet again before too long.

The HRGB national rally scheduled for 3rd - 5th April has been postponed - A new date will be decided on in due course.

New members always welcome for the Regional Team and the team dates for 2020 are shown on the dates for the diary page.

Please let Jane Heald know in good time if you are unable to attend a Regional Team monthly rehearsal session. Thanks.

If anyone has any handbell related images/photos that they would like to display on this website, please send them to me (Mike Johnson - Contact details on the contacts page)
