Christmas in Chester shines brightly…


O Star of Wonder, Star of Night,
Star with Royal Beauty Bright

Westward leading, Still proceeding,
Guide us to Thy Perfect Light


In what has been a very challenging year, experience a Christmas like never before at Chester Cathedral.  A Christmas full of stars…

Join us this Advent and Christmas for Christmas services – both physically within the Cathedral and online for those unable to visit.

Experience the eighth Chester Cathedral Christmas Tree Festival – which this year expands around the entire Cathedral, and promises some extra-special surprises, be thrilled by the vocal talents of opera duo Belle Voci in concert, join us for a social distanced Christmas Carol concert or enjoy some beautiful food and drink at one of our famous Gala Dinners.

Everything we offer this Christmas is Good To Go, and complies with all current Covid-19 guidance.
