Northumbria University Carol Service 2017

The Cathedral Church of St Nicholas

-

You and your family are invited to Northumbria University's Carol Service on Wednesday 6 December 2017

It will take place at 6pm in The Cathedral Church of St Nicholas, Mosley Street, Newcastle upon Tyne.

Northumbria University's Carol Service is an annual event and this year it falls on St Nicholas' Day. The legendary figure of St. Nicholas is derived from Nicholas of Myra who officiated as a bishop in 4th century Greece. During his lifetime he developed a reputation for gift-giving by putting coins in other people's shoes, which accounts for many of today's Christmas traditions that involve leaving gifts in shoes or boots. Both the North American Santa Claus and the British Father Christmas are legendary figures whose attributes derive from the myths surrounding St. Nicholas.

The Carol Service will include performances from the University and Cathedral Choirs. It will be followed by a light festive drinks reception.
