The team of 8 play off a square table using the traditional Yorkshire “off the table” style of ringing. They have been successful at a number of music festivals in the North of England and they entertain a wide variety of audiences as well as ringing at Christmas raising money for charity.
In 1996 the Clifton Village Handbell Ringers represented their country at an International Symposium of Handbell ringing in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The team was invited to demonstrate Yorkshire handbell ringing at its best by the national body of Handbell Ringers (HRGB). This type of conference is organised every 2 years and in past years has been hosted by Korea, Australia and Canada.
