Jubilee projection mappings light up UK for platinum party
Famous spots around the UK, including Stonehenge and Buckingham Palace are being transformed into a projection canvas to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee.

Stonehenge, the UK’s most famous prehistoric monument, featured a projection of the Queen from each decade of her reign at the famous world heritage site, from the 1950s up to the present day.

Marble Arch in London is also home to a projection of Her Majesty’s portraits on the famous archway, undertaken by Marble Arch BID, alongside the National Portrait Gallery and Arts of London.

Kay Buxton, chief executive, Marble Arch BID, commented: Marble Arch and the Royal Family have a long and unique relationship, from the monument’s original creation to it being a central part of Queen Elizabeth II’s Coronation, it has been at the forefront of countless Royal and national events.

“We therefore thought of no better tribute than using Marble Arch to honour the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and we are delighted to have such supportive and enthusiastic partners including the National Portrait Gallery, Art of London and the custodians of Marble Arch, English Heritage, to make this amazing illumination possible.

The monarch’s famous royal residence will also reportedly become Britain’s largest screen for one night only, as part of the platinum jubilee concert.

The entire front of the palace will be projection mapped, providing an impressive backdrop for acts including Queen + Adam Lambert, Hans Zimmer, Andrea Bocelli, Duran Duran, Craig David and George Ezra.

Buckingham Palace is no stranger to projection mapping, with celebrations for the Queen’s diamond jubilee in 2015 also harnessing a projection mapped backdrop on the façade of the famous palace.

The event will take place on 4th June at Buckingham Palace in London.
