Carols and Swedish Lucia songs by candlelight in York Minster:
Monday 11 December 2023 at 7:00pm (Doors open at 6:00pm)
Join us on Monday 11 December in York Minster for our Sankta Lucia candlelit service with carols and traditional songs in Swedish. The service begins at 7:00 pm. The lights are dimmed in the Minster, and a candle is lit. Doors will open at 6:00 pm.
Organized by the York Anglo-Scandinavian Society (YASS) with the support of York Minster, and with additional sponsorship, the Sankta Lucia candlelit procession and Swedish songs will be sung in York Minster on 11 December by the London Nordic Choir .
No tickets are needed. Please donate at the end of the service. The collection is shared between York Minster and the CoScan Trust Fund, which awards cash grants to young British people with well-motivated grounds for travelling to the Nordic countries.
