POSTPONED Quarter Peal Weekend

January 14, 2022
January 17, 2022

The Annual QP weekend, scheduled for January 14-17 has been postponed due to a variety of reasons.  Recent events have left us with no option but to postpone. We had really hoped that this event would be able to take place at the usual time.

Please hold the weekends of March 18 - 20 and June 10-12 as potential replacement dates.  We hope to see you and ring once again with you in Philly!


Join us in Philly for the return of the annual quarter peal weekend over the Martin Luther King holiday weekend. The dates are January 14-17, 2022. Over the years, ringers have been able to score quarters in methods that may not be possible in their own tower/handbell group. This is the opportunity for aspiring conductors to call a quarter and ring with a band that could most likely ensure success. This practice ringing and conducting quarters will help your own tower to move on. We will ring a variety of methods and nothing is impossible if we have the participants. Please do plan on coming for more than the Saturday. There are some great deals for “overnighting” in Philly, as well as many Airbnbs.

For those of you who have not yet experienced a quarter peal weekend in Philly, ask someone who has. It is a weekend filled with camaraderie, refreshments, libations and, of course, lots of ringing.

Please share this with members of your band, copy as necessary, and fill in the form below and return by January 9 if you are interested.

Completed forms should be returned to:

Bruce Butler
829 N. 25th Street
Philadelphia, PA 19130

or sent via email to: thebutlers@aol.com

We can also be reached by telephone at 215-765-8736, or text to 267-902-7178. I look forward to your reply and another successful event.
