Easter at King's

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.
