These services are open to everyone. Owing to the anticipated level of demand, we ask anyone wishing to attend to apply for a ticket. Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee the success of all applications. Please note that priority will be given to members of the College’s Fellowship, staff and students (particularly those in their second year or later), and colleagues from those departments and organisations with which Sir Christopher had a close association.

The service will be available to view on the College's YouTube channel from Saturday 25 January at 2.00 p.m.

Applications close on Friday 20 December 2019. Applicants will receive notification of the status of their application on Wednesday 8 January 2020.
