The Friends of Southwark Cathedral popular Christmas Market may not be able to take place this year

But you can still join them in the Cathedral Churchyard close to our beautiful Christmas Remembrance tree and participate in socially distanced Christmas carols and music.  We are delighted to be joined by members of the Cathedral Merbecke choir as well as other musicians and singers throughout the afternoon who will perform popular Christmas carols.

Festive food and drink will also be available to buy.

Christmas can be a difficult time, especially if you have lost a loved one or aren’t able spend time with friends or family due to restrictions or if you are self-isolating. 

This year at Southwark Cathedral we invite you remember those who can't be with us by dedicating a decoration on our Christmas Remembrance tree located in the Chuchyard.  You can come along on the 5 December between noon and 4.00pm to add your message to our tree, or if you are unable to join us please email your loved ones name and message to Kate Dean, Director of the Southwark Cathedral Friends who will add your message for you.  Kate can be contacted by email here

These messages will remain on the tree until Epiphany on Wednesday 6 January 2021. We will also add these messages to our website here from Saturday 5 December.
