Light Up A Life 2022

After two long years, we are delighted to that our Light Up A Life event and remembrance ceremony in Harold’s Cross will return this year just in time to celebrate it’s 30th anniversary!

Thousands will gather to commemorate the lives of their loved ones, to look back with joy and to celebrate the festive season. This year Brian Kennedy will be our Guest of Honour and we are delighted to welcome back Ian Dempsey as MC.

About the ceremony

The 30th Anniversary Light Up A Life Ceremony takes place on Sunday 4th December at 3.45pm in Harold’s Cross

As the official start to the Christmas season for many, it really will be an occasion to remember, with many other marvellous musical acts who will perform songs guaranteed to get you feeling festive.

You can also toast the season with hot apple punch, soup and mince pies or simply soak up the atmosphere. The highlight of the evening will be the lighting of our magnificent Light Up A Life Christmas tree.

Every year, thousands of people sponsor beautiful lights in the name of their friends or loved ones who have died. It is a wonderful way to pay tribute to those who meant and still mean so much to us.

Love is a light that never goes out!

There is no parking on site at the hospice on Sunday 4th December. Patrons are advised to allow plenty of time to get to the event. The 9, 16, 49 and 54a buses all pass the hospice.

As we are a healthcare site,  attendees must wear face masks in any indoor spaces.
