Be a Chorister for a Day
Our annual Be a Chorister for a Day event will take place on Saturday 14 October from 11.00am-5.00pm, and includes singing games, learning about the Cathedral, and finding out what a Chorister really does. Lunch is provided, and at the end of the day the children take part in Evensong with the Cathedral Choir. In the afternoon parents can take a tour of Wells Cathedral School, and have afternoon tea in Vicars’ Hall before Evensong.
There are still some boys’ places available, and there is a waiting list for girls. If you know a child who will be aged between 7 and 9 on this date and would like to take part, please send your contact details to Melanie Lawlor in the Music Office by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org, or telephone 01749 674483. Places are limited, so please register early.
