Choral Evensong is offered at the Cathedral on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings at 5.15pm and at 3.30pm on Sundays during school term times. When Choral Evensong is not being offered, including most Saturdays, Evening Prayer is said at 5.15pm. Choral Evensong is susceptible to change at short notice, so please do check our Events Calendar, and it is also advisable to call the office if you are travelling over longer distances.
Choral Evensong is usually sung by Choristers, with visiting choirs occasionally. It is an opportunity to experience one of the more unique and precious moments of the Anglican Liturgical tradition, and be immersed in the prayer of the community as it glorifies God in word and song.

Tuesday – Cathedral Choir (Boys’ Voices)
Wednesday – Cathedral School Girl Choristers
