Southend Streets Of Light: A Trail of Light, Love & Hope

From Monday 30 – Sunday 5 November 2023 – Sign up now!

Southend-on-Sea, we have a challenge for you! Will you take part in an exciting event that will light up the nights and inspire hope in every corner of our city? This is your chance to be a part of the “Streets of Light”, a trail of light, love, and hope.

Streets of Light is a unique event that gives you the opportunity to express your creativity and contribute to the community spirit. To get involved, all you need to do is decorate one (or more!) windows of your house, flat, workplace, church or school, and then leave the lights on from 5.30pm to 9pm each night. This way, people can see your fantastic displays.

Your design can be anything you like, but please include one or more of the words LIGHT, LOVE, or HOPE somewhere in it. These are not just words; they are the essence of this event. They are a symbol of our collective desire to create a better, brighter future. They are a sign of our community spirit, our resilience, and our optimism.

Register To Participate
To ensure your display is part of the city’s trail of light, love, and hope, please register your participation by Monday 16 Oct online. Once you’ve registered, your location will be included on the interactive map. This map will be available on the Streets of Light website, enabling fellow participants and visitors to find your display and appreciate your creativity.
