Lights Out – 4th August – Join in with this commemoration of the start of First World War

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.

As part of the commemoration of the Centenary of World War 1 the organisation 14-18Now Art Commissions is inviting anyone and everyone to create a ‘moment’ on 4th August.

“The lamps are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime” Sir Edward Grey, British Foreign Secretary, August 1914

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.
