Candlelight Vigil Belfast

The WW1 Centenary Committee of Northern Ireland are holding a Candlelight Vigil at Belfast City Hall on 4th August at 10pm to commemorate the outbreak of World War One. The evening begins at 10pm and will include a collective moment of reflection, including a short Act of Remembrance and the laying of wreaths. 

As part of the UK-wide Lights Out event, Bob and Roberta Smith take over the East Lawn of the City Hall grounds in Belfast to create an illuminating installation of the statement, using letters designed and constructed together with local artists and community groups. These groups, with diverse age ranges and backgrounds, respond to their understanding of the statement and to the commemoration of WW1.

Each letter of the statement accommodates a set of candles and at 10pm on Monday 4 August, Bob and Roberta Smith invite the city of Belfast to ignite the candles in a moment of shared reflection.
