Christmas Tree Festival – booked tickets
Last updated: Thursday 24 December, 10.30am
As a result of Cheshire West being placed in Tier 3 from Midnight on Christmas Day, the Cathedral will be forced to close to all but private prayer and reflection, and therefore, the Christmas Tree Festival will close this evening (Thursday 24 December).  Those wishing to claim a refund for tickets purchased please email here, ensuring to include your full name, full address and details of your booking.

However, despite being financially insecure due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Chester Cathedral invested over £20,000 in the Christmas Tree Festival to bring light and hope to Chester and beyond, and would welcome any ticket holders donating the cost of their tickets to the Cathedral.  This will help us to keep our doors open as long as possible in 2021.
