Stewart Smith was Director of Music at Abbey Gate College for 39 years, heading the musical activities at the college and notably the Chapel Choir. He retired from this post last summer, but remains extremely busy in his involvement in music. This evening he presents a range of musical performances and is joined by the Bishops’ Handbell ringers, directed by Derek Jackson MBE.  The group is constituted from students at the Bishops’ High School.  The team rings in the traditional English  ‘off –table’ style using a 4-octave set of American Malmark bells. The ringers are members of the Handbell Ringers of Great Britain and became Overseas Members of the American Guild of English Handbell Ringer (AGEHR). Since 2001 Bishops’ Handbell Ringers have donated over £16,000 to local children’s charities
