The Billboards On Piccadilly Circus Have Now Been Switched Off!

We told you towards the end of last year that 2017 would see a change to Piccadilly Circus as we know it, that change being the iconic billboards would undergo refurbishment. The 6 individual screens are to be replaced with one giant screen, which will be unveiled in autumn this year. Until then, there will be a static advertising banner covering the space.

This morning (Monday 16th January), the lights were switched off. It marked a rare occasion, as they’ve only be switched off for a few events in the past, the most notable including the duration of the Second World War, Winston Churchill’s funeral in 1965 and Princess Diana’s funeral in 1997.
