Two services consisting of nine special readings, carols sung by the Choir of York Minster and hymns for everyone to join in. A traditional Christmas celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.
The services will include the world premiere of the winning entry from our Grand Organ Composers’ Competition (18 and under category) to celebrate the completion of the instrument’s once-in-a-century refurbishment.
Free tickets must be booked in advance for both these services to help us safely manage numbers inside the cathedral.
The service on Friday 24 December at 4pm will also be livestreamed via our YouTube channel and this page so you can enjoy the service from the comfort of your own home.
