The popular Service of Lessons and Carols featuring readings and music for the Feast of Christmas, sung by the Choristers and Lay Vicars of the Cathedral Choir, is a much-loved Christmas tradition for many people in the city and beyond.

This year the services will take place on Thursday 23 and Friday 24 December at 4pm.

There is no need to book in advance, however as this service is always very popular, we do recommend that you arrive in good time to ensure you get a seat.

To help ensure that everyone can enjoy the service in comfort and safety we do ask that everyone over 12 years of ages wears a mask in all our facilities, except when seated in the café, and to make use of the hand sanitisers provided. We also encourage everyone regularly to take a lateral flow test, and especially before attending busy events.
