Jazz band outside the main door was much appreciated by the crowd - terrific music from under-13s!

19 June was a special day in Salisbury as the Cathedral opened up parts not normally seen by visitors and the properties in the Close also offered free entrance - a great opportunity which large numbers of people took advantage of. PHOTOS: KATE WOOD

There was much on offer for those who visited Salisbury Cathedral and the Close today... free entry to many of the properties and museums around the Green proved very popular, and access to parts of the Cathedral not normally open to visitors attracted thousands through its doors.


In addition there was plenty of music... from Morris Men to jazz. Particularly impressive was the number of members of the public who had volunteered to join in the 'singing workshop' -and whose singing was truly lovely.


What else could you enjoy for free? Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum, Arundells (Ted Heath's former home), the gardens at Mompesson House, The Rifles Museum... a great way to spend the day!
