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 St Paul’s Cathedral School in the late 1990’s. In November 2000 Salisbury Cathedral School coined the phrase BACFAD and many more have since followed suit. Check out the individual websites using the links to members to see if a cathedral near you does this.


  • Durham Cathedral is holding a Chorister Experience Day on Saturday, 28 April for boys and girls. It starts at 12.30 and finishes at 6pm so if you know a child who might be keen to come along please get in touch with or telephone her on 0191 374 4066.
