Christmas Carol Services at Chichester Cathedral
Chichester Cathedral's carol services are immensely popular so to avoid overcrowding inside the cathedral, admission to the two evening services is strictly by ticket only. Tickets are free of charge, and all applications for tickets must be submitted in writing. Applications in person, by email or by telephone will not be accepted.
Generally, there are two evening services followed by an afternoon service. The afternoon service is not ticketed, but be prepared for long queues. Places at the afternoon service cannot be reserved.
Priority is given to Friends of Chichester Cathedral, Cathedral staff and regular members of the congregation. After this, tickets are allocated on a first come, first served basis. To apply, please send a written request with a S.A.E. to:
Liturgy and Music Assistant
The Royal Chantry
Tickets are not required for the carol services conducted and performed by the various other schools, colleges and other institutions. Nor are they required for any of the other Christmas and Advent daytime services held in the cathedral.
