Carols from King’s is a must at Christmas, be it watching on television or listening on the radio. But the annual carol service is so popular, you may queue all day with the hope of witnessing the traditional event in person – only to be left out in the cold. Might we suggest you try the more regular and intimate evensong services at King’s College, Cambridge.

Hearing the choir’s voices fill this majestic building is an experience to behold and a wonderful present to yourself in the bustling build-up to Christmas. The full choir sings on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday up until December 1st. You can hear evensong throughout the year during term time.
