Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice

Light Up A Life is our annual celebration where the hospice community comes together to remember the lives of those we have lost.

As we are in the process of moving to our new home in Bellahouston Park, the events are slightly different to previous years, but no less
important or special. Below are the details of the events and the ways you can remember your loved ones.


We would like to invite you and your family and friends to:

Christmas lights switch on - Saturday 8 December

Our Christmas lights will be switched on at 4pm at the new hospice, 20 Dumbreck Road, Bellahouston Park, Glasgow. At this very special event, each light represents a loved one who is no longer with us. Before the switch on, please visit our Christmas Fayre or take the opportunity to look around our new home.

The Christmas light switch on is free to attend.  No pre-booking is required, and everyone is welcome.


St Andrew’s Cathedral remembrance services - Sunday 16th December (3.30pm) and Wednesday 19th December (7pm)

We are holding two events at St Andrew’s Cathedral, Glasgow where you will be warmly welcomed by the hospice team and we will share a service of festive songs and readings.

This is a ticket only event and can be booked online by clicking the buttons below or by contacting Sarah Morgan on 0141 429 9858 or are free but there is a suggested donation of £5 on the door.

Remembrance Service - 16 December

Remembrance Service - 19 December


If you would like to pay tribute to a special person, you can do this by:

  • Dedicating a light on our tree
  • Writing a message of remembrance for your loved one on the enclosed star decoration. You can hang the star on your own tree at home, you can also visit the Hospice or return it to us to be hung on our tree at reception
  • Please note that the deadlines for your dedications to be included in the Evening Times and the order of service for the St Andrew's Cathedral events have now passed, and so unfortunately it will not be possible to include them.
