The Shard’s annual festive light show will return on Monday 4 December as the top 20 storeys of the building illuminate the London skyline for a fifth year. With a very special theme that will be unveiled on the first night, Shard Lights will invite Londoners to take a moment out of their busy days, to look up and enjoy Western Europe’s highest art installation during the month of December.

Shard Lights will animate the sky from dusk until early morning with one of five colours each day on rotation. There will be an array of visual effects including gradients, patterns and sparkles throughout the evening. The show will build to a crescendo at midnight and feature special one-off displays to mark the first night and New Year’s Eve.
