King's College Chapel

King's College Chapel plays a central role in College life, as well as being the most instantly recognizable and iconic building in Cambridge. It is the place where new students matriculate, where Fellows are admitted, and where the Choir records music for our own record label. We use the ante-chapel for concerts on a regular basis, and during the University terms we welcome hundreds of people to share in our daily services. On Christmas Eve we broadcast A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols live on radio to millions worldwide and record television services for both Christmas and Easter. 

Choral services in the Chapel will resume on Tuesday 26th April. Members of the wider University and the general public are very welcome to attend.
