Attending Chapel Services

The new national restrictions mean that sadly the Chapel is having to close again to external visitors, at least until 2 December. Behind the scenes, however, the Choir’s preparations for Christmas continue, and as current plans stand, the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols will be broadcast, as always, on BBC Radio 4 at 3pm on Christmas Eve, albeit without a congregation, and repeated on Radio 3 on Christmas Day; and the BBC TV Carols from King’s will go out later on Christmas Eve on BBC Two, and is also repeated on Christmas Day.

We are sorry to disappoint those who were thinking that they might like to attend this year. We hope that you wil be able to enjoy the broadcast and be with us in spirit, and in the meantime invite you to enjoy all that we have to offer on the King's webcast player.
