This unique concert will bring together, for the first time, the three established bellringing teams in Caithness. The Caithness Handbell Ringers (musical director Katrina Gordon) will be joined by the Poltney Bellringers (musical director Lyn Ball) and members of the Castletown Primary School Bell Team (musical director Susan Watson). The musicians will perform a variety of classical, folk and popular repertoire culminating in a one-off performance involving the combined forces of all three teams in a special arrangement of Pachelbel's Canon.
After this short, afternoon concert, there will be an opportunity to meet the musicians and find out more about the art of bellringing.
