Sankta Lucia Festival in York Minster

  • York Minster

    Deansgate , York YO1 7HH (map)

    53.961620 -1.081151

  • This is an Advent Service incorporating the candle-lit Lucia Procession, traditionally observed in Sweden around St Lucy’s Day to celebrate light in the shortest and darkest days of the year. Over 1,000 people came last year. 

    As in previous years it is organised by the York Anglo-Scandinavian Society (YASS) in collaboration with the Dean & Chapter of York Minster. The Lucia procession in 2016 will be performed by the Swedish choir Järfälla kammarkör and a boys quintet, who are coming from Stockholm especially for this occasion. 

    If you're just coming to Lucia, and not the meal, we'll be leaving the pub about 7:00pm to walk to the minster, so suggest you meet us at The Guy Fawkes' Inn before 7:00pm.

      It's free, but I can usually get some tickets for reserved seats at the front which includes Swedish glögg and snacks afterwards.
