The cathedral's carol services this year take place on the Thursday and Friday before Christmas at 7 PM on both nights. Admission is free and is first-come first-served. The familiar story of the birth of Jesus is told through readings from the Bible and from other sources, through beautiful choral works sung by our cathedral choir, and all the favourite Christmas carols. Come and join us for a very special start to the festive season which includes the blessing of our Christmas crib.

The Refectory Restaurant will be serving supper after the service, booking essential, to reserve your table please contact the Refectory on 01722 555172 or email
