Ringing in the New Year at Christ Church Cathedral has become a time-honoured event in Dublin. The Christ Church Cathedral New Year’s Eve Gala Concert is the perfect way to see out an old year and welcome in the new with a very special evening of cracking gospel music by one of Ireland’s finest choirs.
The critically acclaimed Dublin Gospel Choir have become a household name in Ireland, playing numerous concerts each year to sell out audiences both young and old. Their annual performance at Ireland’s internationally-acclaimed boutique festival Electric Picnic is now legendary and the choir are no stranger to large outdoor venues either, having performed to a sell-out 82,000 crowd at Croke Park. They have shared the stage with music industry heavyweights such as Stevie Wonder, Rod Stewart, John Legend, Damien Rice and The Chieftains. The choir also featured along with Chris de Burgh on a special New Year’s Day BBC Songs of Praise programme which was broadcast to over 35 million viewers worldwide. They last performed at Christ Church Cathedral in January as part of The Dubliners’ 50th Anniversary celebrations which sold out both dates in a number of days.
The Christ Church New Year's Eve Gala Concert is one of the top-selling concert of the year in the Cathedral. Given the huge demand for this concert, tickets quickly disappear so book early to avoid disappointment.
