Illuminating the London skyline from dusk till dawn throughout December, Shard Lights is a show full of colour and sparkles. Look up at the night sky every fifteen minutes to see The Shard mark the quarter hour with a mesmerising pattern and strike the hour with a dazzling display. Leading to a crescendo at midnight, Shard Lights creates a visual timepiece for the capital. 


Take a moment to look up at the spire and enjoy Western Europe’s highest light show in a different colour each day. If you capture a photo on your camera or phone, enter the #ShardLights competition for a chance to win photography equipment and some incredible experiences at The View from The Shard, aqua shard and oblix east. Enter as many photos of Shard Lights as you wish. Winner will be announced early January.


Counting down to the start of 2018, see a unique white display on New Year’s Eve before the final colour display from when the clock strikes midnight to dawn on New Year’s Day.


The Shard wishes all an enjoyable festive season.
