A magical evening awaits you at Chester Cathedral on Friday 29th November

For many in Cheshire, The Spirit of Christmas at Chester Cathedral signals the start of Christmas. Now in its 24th year, this spectacular star-studded event has seen an array of popular television and film actors take to the stage to perform festive readings and songs. Previous celebrities have included Jim Broadbent, Alison Steadman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Carey Mulligan and Imelda Staunton to name just a few!

The concert is hosted by Matthew Kelly of Stars in Their Eyes fame and is in support of the Neuromuscular Centre in Winsford, a charity that provides a range of specialist services and unique opportunities for people with muscular dystrophy, a progressive and debilitating muscle wasting condition with no known cure. Matthew brings along his friends from stage and screen, and we’re very excited to announce the first two to join this year’s line-up: David Morrissey and Selina Cadell*.

Selina Cadell has most recently starred as the quirky and lovelorn Mrs Sally Tishell in Doc Martin. She has enjoyed a diverse career, spanning television and films in both comedic and dramatic roles, best known for Wild Child (2008), Match Point (2005) and her television sitcom roles as Dorothy Crowther in The Amazing Mrs Pritchard (2006) and the Dean Mieke Miedema in Lab Rats since 2008.

David Morrissey is an actor, screenwriter, producer and director known for playing the critically acclaimed roles of Stephen Collins in State of Play (2003) and Gordon Brown in The Deal (2003) which earned him a Best Actor award from the Royal Television Society. Recently he has portrayed The Governor in The Walking Dead from 2012 and Inspector Tyador Borlu in BBC2 Drama The City and the City (2018).

Both are delighted to be joining Matthew Kelly at Chester Cathedral this year, and we are very grateful to all our performers, who give up their time for free to support this wonderful cause. More names to be announced soon!
