Friday 23rd December at 7pm
Cathedral Carol Service
Our carol service follows the traditional pattern of the famous service at King’s College, Cambridge. As well as hearing choral music sung by the Cathedral Choir, there is the chance to sing well-known Christmas carols in a joyful and uplifting setting. The journey to Bethlehem, birth of Jesus, adoration of the shepherds and the coming of the Magi are all part of this festive service of readings and music.
This year we will not be taking bookings to attend this service – please just turn up. However, please note that this service is likely to be very popular and we would recommend arriving well in advance of the service start time in order to guarantee a seat.
