The Shard’s Christmas Lights Will Return With A Spectacular New Theme

Shard Christmas

The Shard Christmas lights will have London looking sharp.

When it comes to London’s Christmas lights, every area has their own speciality. Oxford Street goes first, Regent Street goes heavenly, and the Churchill Arms goes spectacularly over the top. As for the highest, you’ll need to look to London Bridge, because The Shard Christmas lights are coming back with a bang for 2018. On December 3rd at 6:45pm, Western Europe’s highest festive display will return, with the new theme of ‘reflections’.

When The Shard’s display turns on, the top 20 storeys of the building will become a festive fiesta, composed of some 550 installations. The display is set to mirror the colour change of the London sky, with a half-hour show moving from golden sunrise, to spectacular sunset, and the deep midnight blue of twilight (smog not included).Shard Christmas

You’ll be able to spot the show every half an hour between 4pm and 1am each evening, throughout the festive period. For New Year’s Eve, a specially-designed display will take place in order to welcome 2019 to London, lasting into the early hours of New Year’s Day.

If last year’s display (?) is anything to go by, The Shard Christmas lights will be an unmissable display. They’re sure to get commuters into the festive spirit in the lead-up to Christmas – or at the very least, serve as a stark reminder that they should probably hurry up with the present-buying…
