Tomorrow marks six years since the tragedy of Grenfell, a high-rise tower in west London that caught fire on June 14, 2017, leading to the death of 72 people.
In memory of everyone affected by the disaster, including the hundreds caught in the fire that are left with mental and physical scars, the London Eye will mark the sixth anniversary by lighting up in green tomorrow night (June 14).
As a landmark that can be viewed across the entire city, the Eye will display a message of remembrance around London, giving anyone the chance to reflect while providing a space to show solidarity.
You can catch the London Eye lighting up green to mark the sixth anniversary of Grenfell from sunset (9:18pm) until sunrise the following morning (4:42am). Though nobody is expecting anyone to gaze into it for the full seven hours, it’ll be worth a second tomorrow to stop, wherever you are, and remember those we lost on that horrendous June evening.
Speaking on the commemoration, Imran Tauqir, General Manager of the London Eye, said: “We are proud to be illuminating in green and joining landmarks across London in memory of those affected by the Grenfell fire. We stand in solidarity with the Grenfell community and hope that in remembering those we have lost we can come together to build a better future.”
