Our History

Beaconsfield Festival of Lights was started in the late 1980’s by Beaconsfield Chamber of Commerce as a late night shopping evening. Over the years the event grew and raised significant amounts for charity. In recent years the organisation of the event has been taken over by the local Rotary clubs.

Funding for the event

There was a time when local government contributions were received. Post the recession of 2009, however, Beaconsfield Festival of Lights has needed to raise all of the money required to run the event. Its continued existence is only possible through the hard work of volunteers and the generosity of community- minded local businesses.

We are a charity

Beaconsfield Festival of Lights is a registered charity. All funds raised are used to put on the event and add to its attractions. In addition every year we nominate a worthwhile local cause to which we donate funds generated from our raffle.  

Beaconsfield Festival of Lights is always grateful to receive assistance from individuals and local businesses in the form of Equipment for the event and volunteers to organise the event or volunting to help on the night of the event.
