Easter Eve

On the Saturday, Jesus' body lay in the tomb. This is a quiet day of preparations for Easter celebrations which start as night falls.

8.30am: Morning Prayer

4pm: Evensong

Sung by the men of the Cathedral Choir

8pm: Easter Vigil

This first service of Easter begins quietly in darkness, but ends in joyful light and noise. Includes baptisms and confirmations from across the diocese.

This year, BBC Radio will be live broadcasting services on Easter Sunday. Services to be broadcast are the 8.10am Eucharist, to be broadcast live on BBC Radio 4, followed in the afternoon by Evensong on BBC Radio 3. These broadcasts will affect access to the building on Saturday 31st March and Sunday 1st April. Please click here for more information.
