THE CANDLELIT VIGIL

ABOUT

The Candlelit Vigil will continue to close the four days of the festival with a moment of reflection in Sackville Gardens.

The home of Alan Turing and the Beacon of Hope will again be turned into a sea of flickering candles as the party calms. We take a minute to remember those lost to the HIV virus as LGBT+ people join together to fight the epidemic worldwide, and the stigma that still exists.

The Candlelit Vigil also provides a space to remember those who are suffering and those who are persecuted, presenting an opportunity to stand together in a united front as we recognise the many challenges that are still faced by LGBT+ communities, both here in the UK and around the world.
