Virtual Chorister Tour

Welcome to the virtual Chorister Tour page, where you can take a trip round the Cathedral with Danger Mouse himself…well, actually it’s Alexander Armstrong, the comedian and TV star from Pointless, who is the voice of Danger Mouse.


Alexander and some of our choristers will take you around the Cathedral where you’ll meet a revolting rodent, learn about the choir’s strange traditions, and discover why we are a Cathedral that floats. There may be a few bad jokes too!
