This year's Christmas season has been a special one, with thousands coming to the Cathedral for services over the last month.

The first night of Lessons and Carols proved to be an unforgettable service when false alarms went off right as the choir sang 'Silent Night'.

Thank you to the Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service for their speedy response to the false alarm. It was due to them and the great Cathedral team of stewards that we evacuated quickly and calmly and were able to return to a fantastic service.
