Lake of Lights 2021

We are pleased to announce that the event has been rescheduled for this
Sunday 12th December from 4.30pm


The festive season can be especially difficult for those who are coping with a loss.

The Thomas Theyer Foundation Lake of Lights is an opportunity to remember a loved one lost at what can be a difficult time of the year for many people. Battery tea lights will be placed on floats and a laser light show with atmospheric music will take place as the lights are floated. This is a gentle and supportive event for the community.

Starting at 4:30 pm at the Boating Lake, Pavilion Gardens, Buxton, Derbyshire, SK17 6BE. Lights can be collected between 4:30 pm and 5:30 pm, please arrive in plenty of time to collect your light.

Minimum donation of £10. Please make sure you have stated your name and included your email address and we encourage everyone to make a dedication. Some of the dedications will be read out on the evening.

If you are unable to attend the event but would still like your light to be floated, please contact:
