King’s College Chapel is a splendid example of late Gothic (Perpendicular) architecture. It was started in 1446 by Henry VI (1421-71) and took over a century to build. It has the largest fan vault in the world and some of the finest medieval stained glass. It is also the venue for the Christmas Eve service- a Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols which was introduced in 1918 and first broadcast in 1928 and is now broadcast to millions of people around the world.

Another carol service, Carols from King’s, is recorded for television earlier in December and broadcast by BBC 2 on Christmas Eve.
