Martyrdom of Thomas Becket Choral Evensong

Martyrdom of Thomas Becket Choral Evensong

A powerful and atmospheric candlelit service during which we will retrace the the steps of St Thomas Becket on his last day of earthly life (850 years ago on this day) and commemorate the significance of pilgrimage to his shrine following his death.

The service will include a procession to the Martyrdom and Crypt.

All are welcome.

This event is part of our 2020 commemorations, marking the dual anniversaries of Becket’s murder 850 years ago and the translation of his body from a tomb in the Crypt to a magnificent shrine in the Trinity Chapel 800 years ago.

Becket2020 is a programme of events developed by partners from across the UK to commemorate the remarkable life and death of Thomas Becket. View all events here.
