Norwich Cathedral - Family 'Explorer' Backpack
During term time our Schools & Family Learning department see thousands of visiting youngsters on school trips. However, the fun doesn’t stop there, with events for families and young people regularly staged during half-term breaks and the summer holidays! With the help of our many volunteers, at these events, we’re able to offer lots of wonderfully engaging activities, such as trails, crafts, music, dance and storytelling. If you’d like to come and experience one of our events in future, keep an eye on our What’s On calendar, where details will be listed. For more information about the Cathedral’s work with young people, please contact our Head of Schools & Family Learning. Our 'explorer' backpack includes a range of resources to support self-guided visits.
