Christmas Celebration

Christmas Celebration with a Difference

This year, Junior School pupils and staff recreated the atmosphere of the traditional live Christmas Celebration by recording readings, sketches and songs in various parts of the Cathedral.

The theme this year was “Light a Candle of Hope and Peace” and in each Cathedral location, including the Nave, The West Front, The Sanctuary, the Choir, the Lady Chapel and the Chapter House a pupil held a glowing candle.

The readings and songs took the audience through the Nativity Story, with some more contemporary items at the end of the Celebration. The Junior choristers sang three beautiful songs next to the Christmas Tree and there were instrumental pieces on violin and trumpet, one of which was played by a pupil on the West Front balcony. 

Parents will receive a link to the recording along with the programme before Christmas.
