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. In addition to being a place of daily worship, it is where new students matriculate, where Fellows are admitted, and where the Choir performs concerts and records music for our own record label. We broadcast A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols live on radio to millions worldwide every Christmas and every year we pre-record new television services for both Christmas and Easter. 

Choral services in the Chapel are open to the public as advertised.
