Lancashire - March Method of the Month

1 – 31 March 2019

2019’s ’Methods of the Month’ from the RW Diary introduce special monthly major methods chosen by Simon Linford. They have all been featured in Project Pickled Egg, and we recommend them to any 8-bell bands looking for good and musical methods with a variety of structure.

March’s method is Lancashire Surprise Major. Link your March performances to this event! (Once you’ve submitted a performance to BellBoard, go to your performance, click on the pencil icon at the top and click ‘Link to event’.) Linked performances won’t be held for printing together, but you can submit them for printing individually in the usual way (don’t forget to donate!).

You can find a line for Lancashire on p.81 of your diary, or at

You can read a Method of the Month article about Lancashire, with compositions from practice night touches to peals, in RW issue 5627 (1st Mar 2019). Subscribe here or buy an electronic version by logging into BellBoard and clicking on ‘RW Issues’ on the left.
