Online training session 16 December 2020: Long length ringing – the story of 100 Spliced

On Wednesday 16 December 2020 Simon Linford will tell us the story of the record peal of Spliced Surprise Major: 100 methods all the work. He will discuss the development of the composition and methods, how the peal shaped the ringers’ techniques for learning methods, what techniques are used to assimilate so much information, and how they can be used by others. He’ll talk about the agony and ecstasy of extreme performances, and the challenges involved in organising them and ringing them. 

Look forward to seeing many of you there! 7pm start time, as usual. Email us if you haven’t received a Zoom link for this talk.
