Lights Out
“The lamps are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime” Sir Edward Grey, British Foreign Secretary, August 1914


The LIGHTS OUT project is an invitation to take part in a moment of shared reflection on the 4th August 2014 to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War.

The 14-18 NOW LIGHTS OUT website and material relating to events and services (or to third party information, products and services), is provided ‘as is’, without any representation or endorsement made and without warranty of any kind whether express or implied.

We try to make the information on how to take part in our LIGHTS OUT project as useful and reliable as possible. However, the purpose of this information is to provide general guidance and useful tips only. It doesn’t necessarily deal with every important topic or cover every aspect of the health and safety considerations and might not be relevant or appropriate in all circumstances. It is not designed to provide professional advice and should not be relied on as such. If in any doubt, you should consult an appropriately qualified expert for specific advice before acting on any of the information contained in this website. You should never attempt to carry out any activity which may put you or others at risk or which may cause damage to your or anyone else’s property. The activities described shouldn’t be attempted by anyone under the age of 18, or the inexperienced. Some activities such as those involving gas or electricity should only be carried out by qualified professionals. Always read and follow any relevant manuals and safety instructions.

If you have insurance cover you should check that your cover isn’t invalidated by undertaking work yourself. We do not and cannot advise on planning permission or building regulation issues.
