'Hear the Angels Sing': Advent and Christmas at Gloucester Cathedral
“We are delighted to invite you to join us as we come together to celebrate the season of Advent and Christmas. From worship and choral music to beautiful decorations and family-friendly activities, there are so many opportunities to come and explore this sacred space. Whether you’re a regular visitor or have never been here before, you are most welcome.
At the centre of all this activity is, of course, the birth of Jesus Christ, the ultimate sign of God’s love for this world. Amidst all the excitement, gift-giving and celebration, let us ‘hear the angels sing’ and share in the peace, joy and love that Christ’s birth brings," The Very Reverend Andrew Zihni, Dean of Gloucester
There's a packed programme of worship, music, family-friendly activities and events taking place at the Cathedral this festive season. Please scroll down this page to find out more, or click on the button below to download our What's On guide:Advent & Christmas What's On Guide
Support the Cathedral’s musical heritage
It’s almost impossible to imagine Advent and Christmas without the beautiful sound of the Cathedral Choirs filling the building, and without the familiar tunes of our favourite carols. Earlier this year, we launched the In Tune Organ and Music campaign to protect and secure its remarkable musical heritage, whilst breathing new life into its offering to ensure this art form can continue to be enjoyed by generations to come.
