Carols and Swedish Lucia songs by candlelight in York Minster

Friday 6 December 2019 (doors open at 7:00pm)

Our Sankta Lucia candlelit service, with carols and traditional songs in Swedish, takes place in York Minster on Friday 6 December 2019 at 7:25pm (doors will open at 7:00 pm). The service lasts for around an hour. Admission is free and no booking is required. There will be a collection, a substantial portion of which will be donated to the CoScan Trust Fund, an organization that helps young British people travel to the Nordic countries.

Organized for the seventh time by the York Anglo-Scandinavian Society (YASS) in partnership with York Minster, this year the choir from Sweden will be Chorus Pictor and friends.

The Choir will also be in the church of St Wilfrid, Harrogate, on 7 December singing the Sankta Lucia concert at 6:00 pm as part of St Wilfrid’s Christmas Fayre.
