E-mail Print PDF

Tower of London, c. James MackenzieLONDON - For the past several months the Tower of London, part of the Historic Royal Palaces, and its ambitious sculptural commission, Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red, have been a central symbol of the UK’s WWI Centenary observations. The display, which grew in size over time, marked each commonwealth casualty of WWI – 888,246 in total – with a hand-made red ceramic poppy “planted” by volunteers around the venue’s exterior. Entertainment and event production supplier White Light has been closely involved in the event, providing lighting, sound, and video support services for the opening ceremony on Aug. 5 and closing ceremony on Nov. 11 (Remembrance Day), as well as providing lighting for the entire poppy display throughout its three-month installation.
