More than 5,000 people came to Salisbury Cathedral last weekend to see its spectacular Advent Procession From Darkness to Light.  

The service begins with the medieval Cathedral in total darkness and silence before the Advent Candle is lit.

This annual advent service, which takes place over three evenings, is a mix of music and readings during which two great candlelit processions move around the different spaces in the 750-year- old building which, in the end, is illuminated by almost 1,300 flickering candles.
