Bournemouth to Light Up the Prom

Celebrate loved ones by dedicating a light to their memory at Bournemouth’s biggest memorial event.

Light Up the Prom returns on Friday 8 November as Bournemouth Hospital Charity teams up with Macmillan Caring Locally to remember the special people who were shining lights in our lives.

Families and friends can purchase a light in memory of a loved one for just £5 and dedicate their name into the Book of Light before coming together on the Bournemouth Pier Approach for a magical evening of memories.

The event features two minutes of silent reflection as hundreds of lights illuminate the prom, followed by a dazzling fireworks display supplied by Pains Fireworks. Musical entertainment will be provided by Funky Little Choir Co.

Bournemouth Hospital Charity Events Officer, Becca Kellaway, said,

“Light Up the Prom is a beautiful way for us all to remember the special people who touched our lives and come together as a community.

“We invite people of all ages to shine their lights with us under a dazzling display of fireworks at this wonderful event.”

Lights can be bought from the Charity Office at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital, the Macmillan Unit at Christchurch Hospital, by calling 01202 704060 and at

Proceeds from Light Up the Prom will be shared between Bournemouth Hospital Charity and Macmillan Caring Locally, who support the Macmillan Unit at Christchurch Hospital.
