"Thank you so much for a truly magical event.  My grandchildren loved learning more about Dick King Smith and were fascinated to discover all the different animals in the Cathedral. Thank you for all the hard work and making it such a special time."

                                                                                              (Visitor Review - Dick King Smith Family Discovery Morning) 

Here at the Cathedral we have a number of children’s events throughout the year.  We especially love to welcome children and families during the school holidays when we run our FREE Family Discovery Mornings.  In addition, our Education team host a range of exciting trails and festival weeks throughout the school year for all ages.

Our most recent series of Family Discovery Mornings had a literary theme as we marked the anniversaries of Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes and more. These Family Discovery Mornings are always very popular!

We also offer Children’s Explorer Guides which give our younger visitors the chance to become Official Cathedral Explorers. These special trails give them a chance to find out all sorts of facts about Saint Alban while following a fun trail around the Cathedral.

See below for photos of our previous events and information about what we have coming up!
