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. The service is attended by members of the College and is by invitation only.

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 from our recordings website via the Links section at the bottom of this page.


A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is the Christmas Eve service held in King's Chapel.
Our Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols was first held on Christmas Eve 1918.
Easter at King’s is a festival of services, concerts and talks in the College over Holy Week and Easter.
Members of the public are warmly welcomed to join us for acts of worship including daily Evensong and sung Eucharist on Sundays.
