King's College Chapel is one of the most iconic buildings in the world, and 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 ceiling in the world and some of the finest medieval stained glass.
The Chapel is also the venue for the Christmas Eve service, A Festival of Nine Lessons, which is broadcast to millions around the world.
The Chapel plays a central role in College life. It was originally built as a place of daily worship for the College scholars, and today the choir still sing evensong during term time.
The Conference is honoured to be able to host its Conference Dinner here and hear a live performance from members of the world famous choir.

This promises to be a special evening but numbers are strictly limited by the capacity of the venue and number of hosts. Please book early to ensure that you have a ticket for this event.
