We very much regret that, following a recent audit of seating capacity in Chapel, we are unable to accept ticket applications from members of the public.  Should you wish to queue outside the Chapel on Saturday or Sunday, we will endeavour to seat as many people as possible in seats which are unclaimed by ticket holders 20 minutes before the commencement of the respective service.  Please note that seats are not guaranteed and queuing is entirely at your own risk. 

Please note that these services are not suitable for toddlers or babies.
