Lights Out - 1 million candles to remember

Lights out is an invitation to everyone in the UK to turn off their lights from 10pm to 11pm leaving on a single light or candle for this shared moment of reflection to mark the 100th annivarsary of the date Great Britain entered the First World War.


The Royal British Legion invites you to take part in this national moment of reflection and we will be holding a candle-lit vigil to mark the centenary. Please come and pay your respects to all those who sacrificed their lives during this conflict.


Please meet at the British Legion for a social evening, nibbles provided (please bring your own drinks and a candle) including a candle-lit procession. Special Centenary candles are available from Marks & Spencer.
