This year we returned to Winchester College to join the Quiristers of the school for their annual carol service. You can listen again to the broadcast online until Christmas Eve and watch videos of the service below.

Lucy Coward presented A Winchester Christmas this weekend – and here’s a sneak peak behind the scenes.
When Winchester College was founded in 1382 the founder, William of Wykeham, made provision for 16 boys – the Quiristers – to sing in the Chapel for services.
For more than 600 years, the college has maintained the tradition. And for the second time, we joined the Quiristers for their annual Christmas carol service. Here are some of the highlights.
