Cathedral Carol Service

Thursday 23rd December at 7pm
Cathedral Carol Service

Booking is required to attend this service. Please complete the booking form below.

Please be seated by 6.30pm otherwise your seat cannot be guaranteed.

This service will also be livestreamed on our YouTube channel. Please note there will be another identical service on Friday 24th December. Booking is essential for both.

Our carol services take on a traditional feel, like that of the famous services 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.

Please note: All worshippers and visitors are currently required to wear a face covering at all times whilst inside the Minster, unless they have a valid medical reason for not doing so. We are currently asking members of the congregation to keep face coverings in place in order to keep everyone as safe as possible.

  • Please be seated no later than 6.30pm otherwise your seat cannot be guaranteed.
  • If you can no longer make it to the service, please do let us know so we can offer your tickets to others.
    Please email if you wish to cancel your booking.
