Massive Remembrance Day projection for 80-meter, 24-storey London tower

On 11 November 2023, from 1800hrs, massive, animated poppies will light up the London skyline, in an Act of Remembrance commissioned by the Union Jack Club (UJC), a military charity and national institution serving non-commission members of His Majesty’s Armed Forces.

On the evening of Armistice Day, a series of specially created animations will be beamed onto the UJC’s prominent 80 meter high Waterloo and Southbank headquarters, and be visible across the Thames into West, North and East London. For those not in the capital but wishing to join in the event, a live stream broadcast will be made available on the Club’s website

Hugh Player, chief executive of The Union Jack Club, said:

“The UJC was founded as a National Memorial to the fallen of the British and Commonwealth Armed Forces. As we approach our 120th anniversary, in our historic Lambeth home, we want play our part in drawing attention to this National Day of Remembrance. Our Members will not forget the sacrifices made by the men and women of our Armed Services, and their families, and frankly, we couldn’t think of a better way to make sure London doesn’t either!”

The projections are scheduled to run from 1800hrs to 2230hrs on Saturday 11 November 2023. They will be visible on the top 1/3rd of the North side of the UJC’s main 24-storey tower, adjacent to Waterloo Station and facing north. Livestreams will run from cameras in two locations, one across the river, on the 20th Floor of Centrepoint, who we thank for their help with this event, and also a camera placed closer to home, from the 1901 Arts Club, who we also thank for their help.

Lest We Forget.
