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 it is organised by the York Anglo-Scandinavian Society (YASS) in collaboration with the Dean & Chapter of York Minster.
London Nordic Choir (LNC) conducted by Carina Einarson, will be the choir this year. LNC is an independent choir, based in Marylebone, and founded by Director of Music Carina Einarson with the aim to promote the unique sound of traditional Nordic choral works.
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.
