Come together for an informal, festive family service at Gloucester Cathedral this Christmas, with the lighting of the Christmas trees.

After spending the festive season apart in 2020, Gloucester Cathedral is inviting families to come together and celebrate Christmas at its festive Family Crib Services this December 2021.

These informal services are perfect for children, with the lighting of the Christmas trees taking place during the service.

The spectacular cathedral will be decorated for the festive season too, with its much-loved Knitivity on display, as well as Christmas trees, garlands and colourful lights that little ones will love to see – not to mention Gloucester Cathedral’s biggest ever Christmas tree, outside on Cathedral Green.

Gloucester Cathedral’s Family Crib Services take place on Thursday 23 and Friday 24 December 2021 at 2.30pm. Both services are free to attend, but tickets must be booked online in advance.

For anyone unable to attend in person, the service on Thursday 23 December 2021 is also being live streamed online.
