Pancake day is here and Chichester Cathedral choristers have been caught on camera flipping pancakes and racing each other around the cathedral.

The normally harmonious group took great delight this week in throwing the edible treats about as part of preparations for Shrove Tuesday.

All of the boys are pupils at Prebendal School in Chichester, and sing almost every day in the cathedral to professional standards.

A ‘Chorister Open Day’ is planned this Saturday, March 4, for boys and their families to come and find out more about the life of a chorister.

The afternoon from 1-4pm will include vocal workshop with the choir, a tour of Prebendal School, the opportunity to meet and chat with the parents of current choristers and the chance to sing with the choir at Evensong in the Cathedral.

The event is primarily for boys in Years 2 and 3 but parents with younger boys are very welcome to come along too, previous formal singing experience is not necessary - any boy who loves to sing is welcome.
