Lake of Lights

Lake of Lights


Tarn Road,


Last year thousands of people joined the hospice at our first Memorial Event at Talkin Tarn. We hope you can join us thus year.

During this special evening the tranquil setting of Talkin Tarn will be transformed by hundreds of lights on the lake and in the surrounding woodland. Each light represents a cherished memory of a relative, friend or loved one no longer with us.

The symbolic event provides you with the opportunity to reflect and remember in a peaceful setting. Each light can be personalised with a special message before being placed on the floating platform.*

The ceremony will begin at 6pm with the lights floated shortly after. From 5pm you have the opportunity to pass your light ready to go on the tarn.

*Please Note: Due to health and safety and environmental reasons candles are placed on floating platforms not floated individually.
