End of Service


Our service is for everyone. So invite your family and friends along as we come together in unison to celebrate the importance of spending time together with family this festive season, and reminisce on the times that were once spent with family and friends we have lost.

At the heart of the service is the Light up a Life tree which will be illuminated, as we take time to pause and remember our loved ones, who we have lost, but their memories live on within us.

Car parking is available in the main car park at the main entrance. There is an overflow car park in the Middlesbrough College Stem Car park which is situated off Wynyard Way.

If you would like to create a dedication and/or donate to our Light up a Life appeal, you can view our Light up a Life page Here 

*For those who have already created a dedication/donated in memory of a loved one, the event is free of charge to attend. However, to ensure we can better prepare venue capacity, we require you to sign up separately to the service.
