New Choristers Always Needed – Find out more!

Many cathedrals and collegiate chapels hold Be a Chorister for a Day or chorister open days to give children a chance to see what life is like as a cathedral chorister. Sadly these wonderful taster days are on hold but many schools are producing  wonderful online virtual tours. So do have a look at our schools list and email or telephone for details of ‘events’ around the country. 

We look forward to adding dates inviting you to visit our schools and cathedrals very soon!
