Event Details

Evensong during Michaelmas Term at Kings College Chapel

This is the most special thing that anyone can do when they visit Cambridge. Allowing the public to enjoy Evensong is an incredibly generous gift by the college and it must be appreciated as a privilege. There are lots of things to do in Cambridge but this should be at the top of anyone’s list. Soak up the voices of the choir under the vaulted ceiling of Kings College Chapel. Bask in the splendour and the majesty of this remarkable chapel and it’s talented members of the college.

As a visitor we recommend that you arrive at 4:55pm at the front entrance to the college on Kings Parade and then you will be at the front of the queue that will form behind you. 5pm they will let you into the college and make your way to the south door. 5:15pm you will be allowed into the chapel and be directed to a seat. 5:30pm Evensong will start.

There is no need to sing or pray but stand up when everyone else stands up and sit down when everyone else sits down.

Be respectful by dressing appropriately, not talking and not taking photographs.



Easter Term Evensong will start on Tuesday 3rd October and runs nearly non-stop until Friday 1st December 2023.
