Light of Peace and Hope

From 6pm on Sunday 11 November at Bourne Hall Park

The Borough will take part as a national chain of beacons is lit.

On the 3 August 1914, Britain’s Foreign Minister, Sir Edward Grey, was looking out of his office window. It was dusk, and as the gas lights were being lit, he remarked to a colleague “the lamps are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime”. Europe was about to be plunged into the darkness of WW1, and it would be four long years before it would again experience the light of peace.

The end of the war, and the many millions who were killed or came home dreadfully wounded, will be nationally observed by a chain of beacons that will be lit at 7pm on the 11 November. The event will also commemorate the huge multitude of men and women on the home front who underpinned the war effort.

Singing by the Epsom Singers (who are all members of Epsom Male Voice Choir), will be followed by the playing of the tune The Battle of the Somme and the Last Post.

The beacons will symbolise the light of hope that emerged from the darkness of war, and we hope that you can join us in this important national commemoration.
