Evensong

Why not end your visit to Norwich Cathedral by joining us for Evensong sung by the Cathedral Choir. Evensong is one of the great treasures of the Church and has been sung daily for hundreds of years in the Cathedral, going right back to the time when this Cathedral church was at the heart of a Benedictine monastery. For more information about forthcoming services, please see our Worship, Services and Music Calendar.
