So why  'Apparently'?

It just crops up in converstion. Try not saying it over the bar, over dinner or over the rainbow, it’s impossible.  It gives you licence to embellish, inflate and add your own twist.
Hear a story, make it yours, re-tell it, differently, better, funnier. Listener becomes narrator. Fact and fiction become bedfellows.
And every time you inevitably succumb to its powers and charms, think of The Bell.

Apparently: it belongs to you.


People love The Bell, don’t just take our word for it, read what our customers and the press say.
