Lights out for WW1 Centenary
"The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime" - Sir Edward Grey, Foreign Secretary, uttered these words on the eve of Britain entering the First World War.
As part of national commemorations to mark the Centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, we will be supporting the LIGHTS OUT campaign on 4 August between 10pm and 11pm.
LIGHTS OUT is being organised in collaboration with The Royal British Legion, and everyone in the UK is invited to take part by turning off their lights from 10pm til 11pm, 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 either individually or by attending one of the many events being organised around the country for a collective experience.
