Richmond to Richmond

Richmond Ringers have an open afternoon as part of the Festival on 7 June when they hope that, although entry is free, visitors will donate generously to their appeal for funds to do a complete refurbishment of their tower with new bells and frame and restoration of their historic bells in a form which enables them to be viewed and enjoyed.

However they also have a major fundraising event in the form of a cycle ride from Richmond, Surrey to  Richmond, Yorkshire during which they will also take in a fair amount of ringing at towers across the country.

Change to ensemble

Harpist Noreen O'Donoghue, who was originally intending to play in The Island Lullaby on Wednesday 8 June, has sadly been incapacitated by acute tendonitis, and so won't be able to come to the Festival. Tríona Marshall, who plays with both The Chieftains and the Ireland's National Symphony Orchestra, has very kindly agreed to replace Noreen.
