Looks like The Shard is up to something, as they will be testing some lighting effects over the weekend in the early hours.

A warning to aircraft in the area reads:

EGLC H4336/15 LIGHTING EFFECTS (TESTING) WI 1NM RADIUS 513015N 0000511W (THE SHARD, LONDON). ON SITE CTC 07826 525717. 15-08-0716/AS2. SFC – UNL, 2300-0400, 28 AUG 23:00 2015 UNTIL 31 AUG 04:00 2015. CREATED: 26 AUG 11:45 2015

Probably a rehearsal for December, as last year they ran several days worth of lighting displays in the run up to New Year’s Eve.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
