Swanage Pier Lighting Up Lives

Shine a light on someone special or a group of people this Christmas


Lighting up Lives is a magical event at Swanage Pier which combine digital tributes with a beautiful display of lights.

‘Lighting up Lives’ started last year, and created a stunning display on Swanage’s iconic Pier. This year the special event has returned with a special lighting up ceremony and a display that promises to be bigger, brighter and better than ever!
