19:00 - 20:30


Tickets for these concerts are now available via Eventbrite


Wells Cathedral's highly-acclaimed Carols by Candlelight concerts return for 2021 with three performances in the run up to Christmas On Sunday 19th, Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st December. Enjoy world-class music for Advent and Christmas sung by Wells Cathedral Choir, interspersed with festive readings and poetry read by a special guest. And see the Cathedral lit by over 3,000 candles each night, providing you with the perfect atmosphere to get in the festive mood!


Proceeds from these concerts support the charitable work of Wells Cathedral.


Please note: Tickets are banded, and seats will be allocated by the Cathedral accordingly. The Cathedral has now re-introduced its fixed wooden seating to the Nave. To allow for social distancing, there are fewer rows than normal, but guests may be seated directly next to someone outside their household.

To help all attendees to feel safe, we would recommend that you:

  • wear a face covering at all times in the Cathedral unless exempt,
  • complete a lateral flow test before attending,
  • avoid attending if you have any symptoms of Covid-19 or have tested positive for Covid-19 in the last 10 days.

Thank you for patience and understanding.
