The 2014 Ringing Roadshow

On Saturday 6th September, Whitechapel Bell Foundry exhibited at the 2014 Ringing Roadshow, which was held this year at the Newbury Racecourse in Berkshire. Foundry staff manned tables displaying everything from pencils to five octaves of handbells!

The Whitechapel stand, typically busy

As the photos show, ours was a very busy and popular stand.

Known for having something different on display at every Roadshow, this year we brought along one of the new Adelaide Dumb Bells we are now offering for sale.

Uniquely, the dumb bell was specially rigged for the Roadshow so that it could be used by someone standing at the same level and proved extremely popular, with visitors queuing to try it out from the moment we opened it to the public right through to when we closed at the end of the day.
