Become a Lumenator

We are looking for 20,000 Lumenators to come and experience beautiful landscapes across the UK at dusk. You can join alone, with family and friends, or with an organisation. It’s free to take part and everyone is welcome, but you do need to book your place in advance. We’re hoping to make sure that anyone who wants to can be involved.

A ‘Lumenator’ is our name for somebody who carries a low impact light for Green Space Dark Skies. Together, thousands of Lumenators will help us to create magical moments in some of the UK’s beautiful green spaces at dusk. Everyone who signs up to join in will help to make amazing art outdoors. There will be up to 20 different events across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. You can take part in one, or travel with us to more.

As a Lumenator, you will be safe, looked after, and guided on your journey. You’ll only need to spend a few hours at the location on the day, and there will be fun things to do. It’s a chance to meet new people and be part of something truly special. Together, we can make history.

We will also be producing a short film of each event that will capture the stories and places featured and will be broadcast online for free after each event.

We are hoping to build everyone’s confidence to access these events in our natural landscape. Some sites are more accessible than others and our Access Manager and local partners will facilitate participation for people with access needs wherever possible. Please provide information about your access needs when you sign up to take part.

Get Involved

We want you to carry a hand-held light and help us to create a series of once-in-a-lifetime events outdoors. There will be up to 20 different secret locations across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland where you can join in. It’s free to take part and everyone is welcome to sign up – in fact, we want you to tell us what you need in order to be involved.

Together, we will celebrate nature, show that the countryside belongs to all of us, and that it is our job to protect it.

I left feeling I had made a mark, connected and would be welcomed back. I was offered a space to share and was not judged. Walk the Plank made me feel welcomed and all my access issues were dealt with kindly.
