Residents are being invited to celebrate Christmas in services at Lichfield Cathedral.

A family crib service takes place at 3pm tomorrow (24th December), with children encouraged to dress as characters or animals from the nativity story.

Midnight mass will then be held with carols from 11pm.

A spokesperson for the cathedral said:

“As midnight approaches, we come together for the First Eucharist of Christmas to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

“The service is led by the Dean with a sermon given by the Bishop of Lichfield and singing led by the Cathedral Chamber Choir.”
