RESIDENTS of Otley may have been slightly bemused by strange chimes emanating from Otley Parish Church bell tower recently as they rang last Sunday evening.

Otley Bell Ringers and Otley Parish Church kindly supported the extra-ordinary bell ringing session in order to give voice to the Chimes, a character in Otley Player's new Christmas Production 'The Chimes' by Charles Dickens being performed at Otley Courthouse on Saturday and Sunday, December 9 and 10 (2pm and 7pm performances).

Tickets are still available from the Courthouse box office.
