Light up Christmas 2021

Awyr Las invites you to donate and dedicate a light on Bangor Pier to celebrate and remember your loved ones this Christmas.

View The Wall Of Lights

Light up Christmas is a magical event combining digital tributes and a real life display of 2,000 lights on Bangor’s beautiful Garth Pier.

In 2020, the inaugural year, the stunning display on the iconic Bangor landmark helped hundreds of people across North Wales and beyond to fondly remember absent loved ones, and celebrate those around us who fill the world with light. This year, Light up Christmas is back – and it promises to be bigger, brighter, and better than ever.

Make your tribute today and your light will shine bright as part of a stunning installation on Bangor’s iconic Garth Pier throughout December. Your tribute will appear on the digital “Wall of Lights” and could be included in a travelling projector show. All donations will benefit patients receiving care in hospitals and our local communities.

Dedicate A Light

Lights Ceremony 2021

Join us on Friday the 10th December between 6pm and 9pm for the first night of the pier illuminations.  Enjoy music, entertainment, food, and a projection display including your dedications. Bring your family for a very special evening and help brighten up the end of what has been a dark year for many. Limited tickets are available.

Tributes Tour 2021

As the North Wales NHS Charity, Awyr Las needs to lead the way in ensuring that only those who absolutely need to be in our hospitals come to our hospitals currently, and for this reason we must now postpone the Tribute Tour until March 2022. This now means that all dedications made before 20th December will now appear on the walls of our hospitals in 2022. More information about the rescheduled Tribute Tour around our hospitals will be issued in January 2022. Sorry for the inconvenience and disappointment this may cause.

Wall of Lights

Your dedication will feature on the special Wall of Lights, improved for 2021. Search for tributes made by you and others in the community, and share your digital tributes with friends and family.

What’s included in your donation

When you donate to Light up Christmas:

  • A digital tribute will be sent to you to share via your online networks
  • Your digital tribute will be included on the Wall of Lights
  • A light will be dedicated on Bangor Pier
  • A memento featuring your tribute will be posted to you

In addition, your tribute may appear in the “Tributes Tour” and / or the projection display on Bangor Pier on the 10th December 2021. Please note: to guarantee inclusion in the projection on 10th December, tributes must be received by 23:59 on Thursday 9th December. Tributes made after this date will be included on the Wall of Lights, and you will still receive a memento.
