Be a Chorister for a Day

Many cathedrals hold Be a Chorister for a Day or chorister open days  to give children a taste of what life is like as a cathedral chorister. The idea was pioneered by Salisbury Cathedral and many more have followed suit. Check out the individual websites using the links to members to see if a cathedral near you does this.

This section also includes details about some forthcoming open days.
