Open Mon - Sun: 7.30am – 6.00pm

Celebrate Advent and Christmas at the Metropolitan Cathedral

Join us for a wide range of festive events and services that perfectly capture the spirit of Advent and Christmas.

Our seasonal programme has something for everyone, from celebratory events such as traditional carol concerts to inspirational services aimed at offering some space to pause and reflect in the run up to Christmas.

Advent also provides lots of opportunities to hear our world-famous Choir perform at the Cathedral.  They will be leading special Advent Services each Sunday afternoon in December, and will also host our family carol concert, A Celebration of Christmas.

Many of our events are free – we’ve listed a selection of our favourites below, and the full list can be viewed in our events section.
