Carols by Candlelight 2018 We look forward to welcoming you to the Cathedral’s ‘Carols by Candlelight’ services at 17.00 (doors open at 16.00) please queue early.

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.

There are no tickets required for this service, everyone is welcome. Please note that saving seats once in the Cathedral will not be permitted, so members of a group wishing to sit together will need to queue together. Please arrive in good time to be sure of getting in before the permitted capacity is reached. In any event, please be seated by 16.40.
