4-8pm 30th October – All Saints Church, Clevedon, North Somerset
In support of Cruse Bereavement Support. Helping people through one of the most painful times in life – with bereavement support, information and campaigning.
Light up the Night has been created to give friends and family an opportunity for shared remembrance of loved ones past in a place of unique calm, peace, hope and community.
The idea is quite simple – you light a candle in memory or celebration of a loved one – however, the experience is quite moving. From early evening a graveyard, cemetery or similar is filled with candles and open for anybody to drop by and walk, linger, perhaps light a candle and contemplate family and friends, past and present.
Although inspired by the religious traditions of All Saints Day, All Souls Day and Day of the Dead from other parts of the world, particularly Eastern Europe and South America, this simple ceremony is open to anyone of any religious or non-religious persuasion.
You can make a donation on the night or in advance on the online form. If you are unable to attend but would like a candle to be lit in memory or celebration of someone, please make your donation online
