Illuminated River turning its bridges blue in support of the Clap for our Carers campaign

Illuminated River and City of London are turning London Bridge, Cannon Street Bridge and Southwark Bridge NHS blue to acknowledge the courage and dedication of our amazing NHS and key workers during this pandemic crisis. The bridges will be turned blue every Thursday between 8pm and 2am to support the #clapforourcarers campaign throughout the lock-down period.

Illuminated River is able to achieve this remotely with thanks to their lighting partners Signify as the safety of their team and the public is of the utmost importance to them, along with adhering to government guidelines to avoid unnecessary travel.​​

Illuminated River is an ambitious, public art commission that is transforming the capital at night, lighting up to 14 bridges on the River Thames that once complete will be the longest public art project in the world. Phase 2 of Illuminated River will light Blackfriars Road, Waterloo, Golden Jubilee, Westminster and Lambeth bridges, expected to be completed in Spring 2021.

You can experience Illuminated River from home by visiting our Google Arts & Culture exhibition. There’s lots to explore including immersive 360 photographs, the history of the bridges and video interviews with artist Leo Villareal.
