Win a cruise by designing a lighthouse

We’re thrilled to announce our new sponsor, Fred Olsen Cruises, for the 2024 Light the South art trail, illuminating Southampton and the surrounding areas throughout the summer.

But first, we need your help to design our lighthouse, which will be one of 40 hand-painted, 8ft tall sculptures placed around Southampton and Cowes from July to September, in aid of Southampton Hospitals Charity.

During the trail, we will be raising vital funds for Southampton Children’s Hospital – one of the top three paediatric centres across the country.

For each design we receive, Fred Olsen Cruises will donate £5 to Southampton Hospitals Charity. And what’s more, the winning designer will receive a cruise for two on Borealis’ Dutch Tulips and Waterways in Five Nights on 2 May.

We would love the designs to be cruise themed, so let your imaginations run wild, but please remember not to mention Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines or show any branding. Once you’re done, simply email your design to Lightthesouth@fredolsen.co.uk before 16 February 2024, with the following:

  • Your design
  • Your name
  • Contact number
  • Email address

We look forward to receiving your designs and can’t wait to see our lighthouse come to life!
