You can’t beat some carols to get you in the Christmas spirit and Peterborough Cathedral is the place to be.

Peterborough Cathedral Choir is inviting a live audience to join them in the Cathedral for an afternoon of Christmas carols on Saturday December 19 at 3pm.

The Celebration of Christmas concert will be a 60-minute feast of traditional Christmas music, including favourites such as Once in Royal David’s City, Ding! Dong! Merrily on High, O Come all ye Faithful, and Away in a Manger.

The event’s been adapted to comply with Covid restrictions, with no interval and you’ll be seated in socially distant ‘bubbles’. Although government regulations mean that you can’t sing and join in (perhaps a blessing in disguise where we are concerned!) you can sit back and enjoy the festive feel in the beautiful setting of the Cathedral – where better to enjoy some carols?

The concert will be available to watch online if you fancy singing along at home whilst making mince pies or wrapping presents.

Tansy Castledine, Director of Music at the Cathedral said – “We are absolutely delighted that we are able to be back in the Cathedral for this Christmas concert after such a disrupted year for our choristers and adult singers. There will be a real sense of joy and expectation as we sing these traditional pieces together. This is sure to be a concert to put you the festive mood!”

Tickets are £15 per person, or £10 with restricted view. They are available via the Cathedral website, [direct link]
