Simply Build It

With such information as you give we are unlikely to be able to help. Did all bulbs go out together? what type of bulbs? Are they 12 volt or 230 volt. It sounds like a lose connection and first I would switch off power and gently tug on each wire to see if any are lose. But after that I would use a meter so not rally something one can instruct on with internet most likely you will need an electrician to visit.
