After spending the day taking part in a range of musical activities, the youngsters were then given the opportunity to belt out some songs in the cathedral itself, performing a special evensong for their parents and carers.

Ashley Grote, master of music at Norwich Cathedral, said: "Our Be A Chorister days have become a hugely popular addition to our annual music programme here at the cathedral.

"It is a wonderful opportunity for boys and girls - whether they want to be choristers or not - to experience the thrill of singing in the cathedral alongside so many other children."
