We look forward to welcoming you to the Cathedral’s ‘Carols by Candlelight’ at 19.00 (doors open 18.00). Please arrive in good time to be sure of getting in before the permitted capacity is reached. In any event, please be seated by 18.40.

The familiar story of the birth of Jesus is told through readings from the Bible and other sources, through beautiful choral works sung by our Cathedral choir, and all the favourite carols. Come and join us for a very special start to the festive season which includes the blessing of our Christmas crib.
