Public Attendance on Christmas Eve

Arrangements for members of the public wishing to attend the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols on Christmas Eve will be slightly different from the all-day queueing system of previous years. This year King’s will operate a ticketing system.

If you wish to attend, you should come in person to the College after 7.30am on Christmas Eve with some photographic identification.  You will be issued with a ticket for a specific seat at the service and invited to come back after 1:30pm to gain admission to the Chapel. Only one ticket will be given per person. Approximately 500 will be available.

“As in previous years we look forward to welcoming people from the City of Cambridge and from around the world to this very special service. By issuing tickets in this way we will maintain the generous spirit of  the occasion without requiring members of the congregation to stand outside in the cold all morning.”
The Revd Dr Stephen Cherry, Dean

Please note that members of the congregation should not bring anything larger than a small handbag with them to the Chapel.

Any questions about gaining admission to the College for this service or at any other time over Christmas should be directed to the Head Porter, Mr Neil Seabridge
