10 December 2023



A traditional candlelit service of carols and readings for the season of Christmas sung by the world-famous Choir of Magdalen College, Oxford. The services are held in Magdalen’s ancient and beautiful chapel, and both services on 9th & 10th December are identical, featuring old and new carols and traditional Christmas readings. These services are open to members of the College and members of the public, but, since the atmosphere will be quietly reflective, they are not suitable events for babies or small children under the age of 5 years old.

Proceeds from ticket sales will go towards supporting the work of the Chapel and Choir as well as this year’s chosen Christmas Charities.

These tickets are unreserved tickets in the Antechapel. Please note: A large number of the seats in the Antechapel have no direct view of the Inner Chapel where the Choir and readers will be throughout the service. For questions please contact

Doors open: 4.30pm
