PRE-SCHOOL VISITS

WE ARE ALWAYS DELIGHTED TO WELCOME PRE-SCHOOL GROUPS TO THE CATHEDRAL

Over 400 pre-school children and their families come to our Pre-school Christmas service every year.

We offer the following activities or can arrange something special for your group.

The cost is £4 per child and we offer morning or afternoon sessions to coincide with Pre-School timings.

The Cathedral Centre can offer a comfortable place for a mid -morning drink and snack - and loos!

Shape Trail

A morning of looking at shapes in the Cathedral and craft activities and shape games in the Cathedral Centre.

Multisensory Experience

A morning of wonderful sights and beautiful smells! An opportunity to respond to the atmosphere of the Cathedral.

Animals By Torchlight

Searching for animals carved on the misericords.

Undercover Bear

Undercover Bear hides 'treasures' in golden boxes all around the Cathedral. Following some simple clues, little treasure hunters can find the treasures, learn a little about their story and make something special from them to take home. These treasure hunts have been on a variety of themes; Christmas, Easter, Harvest, animals, journeys etc. Or you suggest a theme and Undercover Bear will take it on!

Story Boxes

We have a selection of story boxes to help tell the stories in the Cathedral.
