The service will be broadcast live from Ely Cathedral. It will then be available on the BBC iPlayer.

Everyone is invited to attend the service in the Cathedral. You are asked to arrive early and be seated by 3.15pm at the very latest.

The service will also be recorded by the BBC for use at a later date and to allow this to take place, the Cathedral will unfortunately have to be closed to the general public from approx 3pm until approx 4.45pm to prevent noise intrusion.
