Norwich Cathedral sits next to a large tree. The sky is blue and cloudy.

We are inviting pupils from your educational setting to come to Norwich Cathedral and sing with Norwich Cathedral Choir.

In partnership with the Norfolk Music Hub, Ashley Grote (Master of Music at Norwich Cathedral) has compiled a short 30 minute programme of songs to perform alongside Norwich Cathedral Choir.

We are inviting all children in Key Stage 1 to participate in this concert, which will include fun children’s songs based on the themes associated with Harvest, creation, the environment, sustainability and care for our planet. Please note that some of the song content will be relative to the Cathedral surroundings.

We are able to offer the opportunity for families to join us at 5pm ( doors open at 4.45pm), for the final performance. Please note that this is a non-ticketed event and will be standing only, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to see your child from the audience space. We have a strict no filming or photography rule in place for this performance.

We will be streaming the concert via a private YouTube link, managed by Norwich Cathedral. This will be available for a few days after the concert for you to share with your educational setting for families who are unable to attend. Those students who are unable to be filmed will still be able to take part but will be kept out of the filming area.

We regret that we are unable to assist with transport costs to and from the venue.
