Festive greetings from St John’s

Celebrate the season from the comfort of your home with these festive treats.

Justina reads Wordsworth

Enjoy Justina Kehinde (2011) – writer, performer and director – reading you a Christmas poem from fellow Johnian William Wordsworth (1787).

A Service for Advent with Carols

Listen to the St John’s College Choir sing at the Advent Carol Service, which was broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 on Sunday 29 November.

St John’s Mince Pies Recipe

St John’s Head Chef, Mark Newman, kindly shares the recipe of the College’s mince pies so you can recreate them during the festive season.

Musical postcards

St John’s Voices recorded A Ceremony of Carols by Benjamin Britten in the College Chapel. They invite you to watch each movement on their Facebook page.

We look forward to welcoming you back to College for an event, a walk in the gardens or a chat when it is safe to do so. In the meantime we hope that our alumni publications, digital platforms and virtual events have offered you the opportunity to stay in touch with fellow Johnians during these extraordinary times.

The whole team wishes you, and your family and friends, a happy holiday, a merry Christmas and a safe 2021.
