Be a Chorister for a Day

The Cathedral’s annual ‘Be a Chorister for a Day’ event takes place on the third Saturday of September. Children aged between 6 and 9  are invited to come to the Cathedral for the day to find out 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. At the end of the afternoon the children sing Evensong with the Cathedral Choir. Parents can take a tour of the School if they wish, before enjoying the Evensong service.

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

Song Squad

Would you like to sing, have fun and make new friends?

Wells Cathedral Song Squad is our Junior Choir open to all children aged 4 to 13 (inclusive), who attend any school. It’s great fun and there’s no audition. The only requirements are an eagerness to learn and a love of singing! Rehearsals are held on Tuesdays during term time from 5.00pm – 5.30pm (for the 4 – 6 year-olds) and 5.00 – 6.00pm (for the 7 – 13 year olds), in the Education Room at Wells Cathedral.

More Information

If you know a child aged 4 to 13 who loves singing, please be in touch! For those aged 4-6 there is Wells Cathedral Song Squad Minis. This training choir for the well-established Song Squad gives younger children the opportunity to sing to a high standard and perform concerts both on their own and alongside Song Squad. For children aged 7 to 13 we have Wells Cathedral Song Squad.

Both choirs are great fun, open to all who attend any school, and there is no need to audition – children just need to enjoy singing! Rehearsals are held on Tuesdays from 5.00 – 5.30 p.m. for the Minis, and from 5.00 – 6.00 p.m. for Song Squad, during term time.
