Gloucester Cathedral invites you to a Candlemas Carol Service

What's On at Gloucester Cathedral

Gloucester Cathedral is inviting everyone to attend a Candlemas Carol Service on Sunday 3 February at 6.00pm.

“No room at the Inn” - On Christmas Eve 2018, thousands of people flocked to their Cathedral for the 6.00pm Carol Service, with huge queues stretching into Westgate Street from as early as 4.30pm. For the first time in history this resulted in the Cathedral being absolutely full to capacity and for the safety of the congregation, hundreds were turned away at the door. It is with extraordinary compassion and great understanding that Gloucestershire folk took this in their stride with not a single complaint received.

Anyone who was turned away on Christmas Eve is especially invited to come along and celebrate the end of Christmas at this atmospheric and beautiful candlelit service.

The Very Reverend Stephen Lake, Dean of Gloucester said:

“Candlemas is the culmination of the Christmas season. We were surprised by the numbers at Christmas – now come and be surprised that the good news goes on!”
