Watchfire Signs

To mark 70 historic years, digital out of home screens across the UK formed a chain of virtual beacons on June 2 as part of the celebrations for the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty the Queen.

From the screen above Glasgow central station to Southampton, Ocean joined the rest of the nation in lighting beacons to mark the historic occasion using its full motion city centre and roadside network in 10 cities.

The grand centrepiece of the OOH salute was the world famous Piccadilly Lights in Piccadilly Circus London which are owned by Landsec. The giant curved screen lit up for 30 minutes from 9.45pm with an animated beacon.

The other cities and screens taking part were: EdinburghGlasgowManchesterNewcastleBirminghamDerbyNorwichLeeds and Southampton. Four screens in Westfield LondonCanary Wharf and Westfield Stratford City will completed the virtual beacons appearing across London.

On the final evening of the Jubilee weekend, Ocean’s city centre screens showed a series of photographs of the People’s Platinum Pageant taken as procession made its way through the streets of London. Curated in association with the Pageant organisers, the photos featured the Queen’s golden coach, community groups and national treasures from the performing arts as they passed along Whitehall and the Mall to the big Buckingham Palace finale.

Ocean’s out of home network started a countdown to the Platinum Jubilee on May 27 and we will carry highlights from the celebration for several days this week.
