LIGHT UP THE PROM - FRIDAY 9 NOVEMBER 2018 - 7.30PM
If you’ve lost a loved one who remains a beacon in your life why not dedicate a tribute to them at the annual Light Up the Prom event at Bournemouth Pier Approach. This poignant memorial event is organised by Macmillan Caring Locally and Bournemouth Hospital Charity for people to honour and remember their loved ones.
You can purchase a battery operated remembrance candle below. The names of your loved one will also be added to a remembrance book for the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals, which will continue their legacy.
When the clock strikes 8:00pm, a single firework will sound, which signals the amassed crowds to switch on their lights. After two minutes’ silence to honour your loved ones there is a short firework display in celebration of their lives.
Join us at Bournemouth Pier Approach from 7.30pm on Friday 9 November for lights, music by Funky Little Choir and fireworks in our Light Up the Prom memorial event!
Please encourage your friends and family to take part in Light Up the Prom, either by purchasing a light or by joining us. Additional lights will be available to buy on the night.
We look forward to seeing you on the Pier Approach!
*If you have ordered a light after Friday 26 October, we will not be posting lights as they may not arrive on time. You can pick them up on the night or from the Macmillan Caring Locally at Christchurch Hospital.
** If you are unable to attend, you can still join us by letting your light shine wherever you are at 8pm, when our two minute remembrance silence begins.
