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, we are very grateful to the orgranisers for inviting us - the York Anglo-Scandinavian Society (YASS) in collaboration with the Dean & Chapter of York Minster.
A choir will be travelling from Sweden especially to perform at this event
We'll be leaving the restaurant about 7:00pm to walk to the minster, so if you're just coming to Lucia, but not the meal, suggest that you meet us at the restaurant before 7:00pm.
