The Cathedral is at the centre of a thriving community who share in the celebration of Christmas as the birthday of Jesus. We welcome over 300,000 people during our Christmas festival, attending one of our many Christmas service and concerts and to explore the wealth of activities taking place in the Cathedral Close.
We hold many Christmas services in the Cathedral each year. Our pattern of services includes Advent carols, public carol services, children’s nativity services, Midnight Eucharist and Christmas Day services.
See our service listings (Christmas services will be available to view from mid October)
Join us on Friday 21 November from 6pm to 9pm in the Cathedral Outer Close for an evening of free entertainment to celebrate the opening of this year’s Christmas Market and Ice Rink.
