The evening will include a short service to bless the outdoor crib, carols with the Cathedral Choir and the lighting of the cathedral’s Christmas trees.

There will also be 30-minute guided tours of the cathedral, Christmas stalls, children’s activities and more, and the Refectory Café and the gift shop will also be open.

The open evening will run from 6.30pm until 9pm. The crib service will be at 7pm and people are being encouraged to begin gathering at the west front of the cathedral from 6.30pm.

Throughout the festive season the cathedral will also have a Tree of Remembrance next to the outdoor crib. People are invited to write a message on a star and place it on one of the tree’s branches as an act of remembrance.
