You don't have to just sit in the dark for an hour, why not plan a Candlelit dinner and enjoy a romantic meal with a loved one, or arrange a dinner party for friends by candlelight? You could also arrange a fun Games night and play those games we all loved to play as a child - murder in the dark, blind man's buff, or cluedo. Or why not turn your lights off and head to one of your local landmarks to watch the lights go out - don't forget to bring a candle!
