Unauthorised projections on parliamentary buildings

18 February 2016

In light of recent unauthorised projections onto the Elizabeth Tower (Big Ben) we wish to reiterate that as a much-loved public building and international symbol of the United Kingdom, it is important that the Elizabeth Tower and other parliamentary buildings can be enjoyed by citizens and visitors alike and their symbolic status protected. Having commercial messaging beamed on to them compromises this symbolic status which is why there are planning laws requiring permissions to be granted before any projection is allowed.
