Cooking with the Cathedral
We are delighted to share with you our first cookery class! Join Maria, our Catering Manager, and learn how to make pasta and meatballs. This session has been created for #ReadySteadyWorcs - holiday activities for children and families in Worcestershire.
Create your own tile for the Cathedral floor with our arts workshop. Cheryl will take you outdoors to find some resources for your artwork and then show you how to make your own tile design. We'd love to see what you create. Add it to facebook, twitter or instagram and @ us!

Visiting the Cathedral
The Cathedral is currently closed to visitors. However, when it reopens you can download trails and activities here ahead of your visit. These have been adapted to take account of the restricted route around the Cathedral due to Covid.
We regularly offer FREE activities for children and families during the school holidays. These are usually suitable for Primary and Pre-School aged children unless specified otherwise. Past activities include rock and fossil craft days, Tudor themed activities, making a clay gargoyle, stained glass pictures, brass rubbings, designing Easter eggs and fishing games.
We are planning for their return in May 2021.
Please see our What’s On guide for dates and times.
