Shard Lights 2020 

Featuring seasonal colours of gold, red and green, The Shard’s spire lights are illuminating London’s evening sky with festive hues. 

Made up of 575 LED lights and fixtures across the top 20-storeys of The Shard (800ft to 1,016ft), Shard Lights is the highest light show in Western Europe. Seen across the capital, Londoners and visitors can take a look out of their windows or look up when on the move to see the spectacle, which will run until the early hours of New Year’s Day.

Shard Lights - Thank you 

Illuminated with visual effects in shades of blue and white, the first phase of 2020's Shard Lights display was specially designed to show gratitude to all NHS staff, key workers and volunteers who have worked tirelessly to keep the British public safe during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. NHS workers from Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospital were invited to switch on the show on Thursday 26th November. The show was displayed each evening till Friday 11th December.
