Festival of Carols
Join us for our annual Festival of Carols at Exeter Cathedral, with fantastic performances from college students. The evening starts with a candle lit procession through the Nave and followed by performances by the Exeter College students, orchestra and choir. All proceeds will go to the Devon Air Ambulance Trust, the college charity of the year.
We are proud to support the Devon Air Ambulance Trust and their aim "to relieve sickness and injury in and around the county of Devon through provision of an emergency Air Ambulance Service."
Every year the Charity needs to raise £5.5 million to run the service. They also need to raise around £1m more to build capital funds in order to ensure they can replace aircrafts after ten years’ service.
Hosting the Festival of Carols each year enables us to boost donations to our charity of the year but more importantly show off the exceptional talents of our students across a number of faculties including Foundation Studies, Media and Performing Arts and from our Centre of Music and Performance. John Laramy, Principal of Exeter College said ‘This Festival of Carols provides an opportunity for us to recognise the start of the festive season and celebrate the talent of our student musicians, readers, staff and college community. We hope that you enjoy it and will give generously as you leave the Cathedral. Your donation will be going to a really worthwhile cause.’
This year the Festival of Carols will be held on 8th December with doors opening at 6.30pm. The service is free to attend and open to anyone who would like to come along and celebrate with us.
Time: Doors open at 6.30pm, Carol Festival starts at 7.30pm
