Broadcaster Sir Paul Holmes will be farewelled at a service in Auckland on Friday, at the same venue used for Sir Edmund Hillary's funeral.

The ceremony will be held at the Auckland Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Parnell at 1pm.

The Anglican cathedral can accommodate 1100 people.

Holmes had previously been treated for prostate cancer but died on Friday after it returned last year. He had also undergone heart surgery, with his poor health forcing him to end his long broadcasting career in December.
