Easter at King's

 

“Easter at King's goes from strength to multi-faceted strength”
BBC Music Magazine (March 2013)

In the twentieth century the name of King’s College became inextricably entwined with the celebration of Christmas across the English-speaking world. The twenty-first century has seen the very welcome and appropriate balancing of this through the inception, success and growth of Easter at King’s: a festival of services, concerts and talks for Holy Week and Easter.

The full Easter at King's 2019 brochure will be available soon. In the meantime, scroll down to find details of the concerts in this year's series.
