Over 20 years together, The Celtic Tenors are marking their Belfast Cathedral debut as special guests of this year’s Christmas at the Cathedral. Music will include seasonal favourites and of course snippets from their impressive back catalogue.

The Celtic Tenors are delighted to be back doing what they do best – bringing some musical magic in their charming way.

They genuinely love what they do and you’ll see that shine through.

About St Anne's

Step off Belfast’s busy streets and into a timeless place of prayer to explore its history and to enjoy quiet moments of reflection in this beautiful place.

Belfast Cathedral, known locally as St Anne’s, is a Cathedral of the Church of Ireland, part of the Anglican Communion (Episcopalian). It is unusual in serving two separate dioceses, Connor and Down & Dromore, and so has not one, but two, Bishop’s Seats.
