Advent Procession – FULLY BOOKED

Scroll to explore

Free, in-person tickets for the Advent Procession are now FULLY BOOKED. Please join us online for this special service. 

Join York Minster’s worship to mark the start of Advent with an atmospheric and breath-taking candlelit service of music, readings and prayers for Advent, in celebration and anticipation of the arrival of Jesus Christ, the Light of the World.

The service, which will include music from the Choir of York Minster, starts in darkness before a single flame is used to spread light through the cathedral, with candles held by each member of the congregation.

The service will be livestreamed via our YouTube channel and this page so you can enjoy the service from the comfort of your own home. Our 11am Advent Sunday service will also be livestreamed on this date.


We kindly ask that if you have booked tickets and cannot attend the service, to please return them so others can enjoy the Advent Procession. You can do this by contacting our Bookings Team on 01904 557200.

Doors will open at 4.30pm. You must have a pre-booked ticket to attend this service in-person.
