🗓️ Saturday 21st October 2023
Local charity Lewis-Manning Hospice Care is holding a special festival of light on Swanage Beach to remember loved ones.
There will be readings, local singers and a performance by The Salvation Army, and of course candle-lighting, providing a unique shared, community experience to remember and celebrate the lives of friends and family who have passed on.
The illuminations on the sand will not only create a stunning display for people to reflect together, but also provide a great opportunity to help raise money for the charity.
This event is free, but there’s a suggested donation of £5 to personalise a candle with a message, which you can do at the dedication station before it is placed on the beach.
Candles are LED, allowing them to be reused and safely placed on the sand.
- Timings – 6pm – 8pm
- Donations – You can make your donation on the day or in advance online: lewis-manning.org.uk/candles-on-the-beach/

- Candles on the Lake – In Poole Park on Saturday 7th October, 6pm – 8pm
- Candles on the Green – In Wimborne, Saturday 18th November, from 6pm
