Those attending are invited to bring a small gift or toy to place under the tree - a favourite moment in the service for many in past years.

Donated gifts will be distributed to sick and under-privileged children in Leeds. They should not be wrapped so that gifts are open to view.

Tickets are available to book online via our Eventbrite page or in person from the Minster on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, 11am-2pm.

The event is free, although a recommended minimum contribution of £5 will be collected at the door on the night.

After costs, the proceeds will be split between Leeds Minster and Martin House Children's Hospice.

Please note that some seating has a restricted view and seats will be allocated on a first come, first served basis as people arrive.

There are no parking facilities on the night at the Minster.
