#ShortNews: Inside Wakefield Cathedral at Christmas

Inside the Grade I-listed building, which is open 365 days a year, Christmas trees are twinkling and rehearsals are under way for a lunchtime concert and a later carol service. It is a hive of activity with school children coming and going.

The cathedral has about 100,000 visitors annually and has a target that everyone who lives in the Wakefield district will come in at least once a year. Visitors wander around the cathedral, many craning their necks to take in the details of the roof or the dominating rood screen. But others come in to find peace and reflection.
