Cathedral capacity - there is limited capacity for the cathedral service, and we will be prioritising entrance for young people and students. We will be maximising capacity by removing the chairs and seating everyone on the floor, however for those unable to gain entry the service will also be broadcast on screens outside the Cathedral. A ticket to the service does not guarantee you entrance.
