Be a Chorister for a Day

Be a Chorister for a Day

If you would like to experience a day in the life of a chorister, please come along to this fun day that takes place on the third Saturday of September each year, during which children aged 7 – 9 years old are invited to spend a day at Wells Cathedral.

The Cathedral’s annual ‘Be a Chorister for a Day’ event takes place on the third Saturday of September. Children aged between 7 and 9  are invited to come to the Cathedral for the day with their parents, and learn what it is like to be a Cathedral Chorister.

The experience 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 sing Evensong with the Cathedral Choir. In the afternoon parents can take a tour of the school if they wish, and have afternoon tea in the historic Vicars’ Hall before the Evensong service.


If you are interested in the 2021 event, please contact the Cathedral Music Office via

If you can’t wait that long you may like to join Wells Cathedral Song Squad, for children aged 7-11, or Wells Cathedral Song Squad Minis, for children aged 5-6. Please email for more information about how to join.
