Lights Out – 4th August 10pm – 11pm

Everyone in the UK is invited to take part in LIGHTS OUT by turning off their lights from 10pm to 11pm on 4 August, leaving on a single light or candle for a shared moment of reflection.

People can take part in whatever way they choose, marking the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War either individually or by attending one of the many events being organised around the country for a collective experience.


Many of the Capital’s landmarks will be switching off their lights and leaving just one light lit in a window.
