Celebrities turn their Lights Out to honour WW1 heroes

Lights Out
Dear Mr Devall,

The Royal British Legion invites you to take part in LIGHTS OUT, to remember those Commonwealth service men and women who lost their lives in the First World War.

A UK-wide event, LIGHTS OUT is an invitation to everyone to turn off their lights from 10pm to 11pm on 4 August, leaving on a single light or candle for a shared moment of reflection. LIGHTS OUT will be one of the largest mass participation events of its kind ever seen in the UK, and will complement a candlelit service held at Westminster Abbey on 4 August 2014.


You can be part of this historical event in a number of ways:

  • Watch our exclusive film which features Jeremy Paxman, Fiona Fullerton, Louis Smith, Twiggy, David Gandy and Chelsea Ladies footballer Gilly Flaherty.
  • Attend a local LIGHTS OUT event in your community or why not think about organising one in your area? Resources are available to organise a successful event.
  • A limited edition Centenary candle is available from selected M&S stores and online at www.marksandspencer.com from 4 July 2014 for £4, with all profits going to The Royal British Legion.
  • For nearly 100 years The Royal British Legion has been supporting our Armed Forces community from the First World War and its aftermath through to the conflicts in Afghanistan today. Please help us to continue this work by making a donation online or by texting LIGHTS OUT to 70020*

However you choose to commemorate, we hope to light one million candles across the UK to remember each and every one of those Service men and women who gave their lives during the First World War. Please join together with us to create a unique national moment to honour them.

Thank you.
