Open Rehearsals

Our Open Rehearsals are one of the best ways of experiencing the magical music of the Three Choirs Festival for free. During the day, the Cathedral will be open for visitors to come in and enjoy a rehearsal with our choirs, and orchestras in preparation for that night's concert.

Our open rehearsals are relaxed, meaning you can come and go whenever you please. Whether you're on a work lunch break or on a general visit to the cathedral, the open rehearsals are there for you to relax, unwind and enjoy the music. There's no ticket required, and our friendly staff will be able to provide more information should you need it.

If you enjoy the music and would like to attend that evening's performance, you can head to our on-site ticket office, or book online to secure a seat!
