From the end of November the cathedral will host their annual Christmas Tree Festival. The festival will feature more than 40 majestic Christmas trees, turning the cathedral cloisters into astonishing tree-lined winter walkways. There will be special services to mark one of the holiest times in the Christian calendar – including an Advent procession and carol service by candlelight on 26 November and a crib service for all the family on Christmas Eve.
Christmas at the cathedral wouldn’t be complete without a feast of festive music. Expect carols and seasonal readings from Chester Cathedral Choir at our A Choral Christmas concerts on 10 and 17 December and join singing superstar Will Young as he hosts a charity carol concert on 14 December. Carrot Productions are back with their family-friendly concert on 3 December featuring a showing of The Snowman film, accompanied by a live 25-piece orchestra.
