Angels, shepherds and Christmas jumpers – York Minster’s tales from the crib

York Minster

The York Minster Crib Service is a Christmas highlight for many York families, but for 2020 – as with so many things – it’s going to be a little different. There will still be a service by the crib, but numbers are strictly limited and free tickets must be booked in advance. It will still be a lovely service, though. It will take place at the crib, surrounded by the angels, shepherds and kings. Children are invited to come in fancy dress of their choosing for the service, and Christmas jumpers are optional for all.
