Carols from King's

Carols from King's

Carols from King’s is shown on BBC Two on Christmas Eve (please check the BBC TV guide for the time). This is recorded by the BBC early in December and is a different service from A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols. In 2020 the recording took place without a congregation.

You can download the latest Carols from King's service booklet below, but please be aware that the service may not have been broadcast in its entirety due to time restrictions, and may not have been in the order printed due to film editing. You can also download Carols from King's if you don't have access to the BBC.
