Crib Service

Crib Service
Lots of fun for children and adults alike as the Nativity story is brought to life.

The crib service is at 12 noon on Christmas Eve in the Cathedral's Cloister.

This is an informal service at which we invite children of all ages to dress as a character from the Nativity.

All are welcome at Norwich Cathedral's Christmas services. To help people stay safe at our services, the Cathedral's seating capacity will be reduced and once all seats have been taken we regret we will not be able to let others in. We recommend arriving early for services.

Please note that, in line with Government guidelines on Covid-19, it is mandatory for everyone to wear a facemask in the Cathedral unless they are exempt.

Hand sanitiser continues to be available for visitors to use at the Cathedral’s entrances and throughout the building. We encourage people to maintain a safe distance from others when moving around the Cathedral in order to keep everyone as safe as possible.

Visit Britain and Visit England have awarded Norwich Cathedral with the We’re Good To Go industry standard and consumer mark to reassure visitors that the Cathedral adheres to Government and public health guidance with regard to Covid-19.

Please be aware that the information above may be revised if Government guidelines change with regard to the Coronavirus pandemic.
