Be a Chorister for a Day (Virtual)

22nd May @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Each autumn, Wells Cathedral holds a fabulous free event called Be a Chorister for a Day, where children can experience what it is like to be a Cathedral Chorister. The day is open to children aged between 7 and 9, there are fun singing workshops, and when the event is held in the Cathedral the day ends with them taking part in the Evensong service alongside the Cathedral Choir. Children taking part do not need to be trained singers, they just need to enjoy singing and want to take part in the day! Unfortunately the 2020 event was cancelled, due to Covid, and so this year two events have been arranged.

The first will be a Virtual event, taking place via Zoom on Saturday 22 May 2021, from 10.00am-12.00noon. This will include singing sessions and a live Q&A with current Choristers, and the opportunity for parents to ask questions and find out more too.

The second event, it is hoped, will be in-person at the Cathedral on Saturday 18 September 2021 from 11.00am-5.00pm. Lunch will be included for the children, and parents can take a tour of Wells Cathedral School.

Here is a link to further information about Choristerships, including a wonderful short video of the Choristers explaining how they feel about Chorister life in their own words.
