The Great Bri­tish switch off!

Nuneaton Telegraph - - FRONT PAGE -

It’s the most spec­tac­u­lar – and unusual – light show on Earth. At 8.30pm on Satur­day, hun­dreds of Bri­tish land­marks, from Buckingham Palace to Ed­in­burgh Cas­tle, will be plunged into dark­ness for the tenth an­niver­sary of Earth Hour. They’ll be joined by mil­lions of homes, busi­nesses and schools in more than 170 coun­tries who will turn their lights off for 60 min­utes in sup­port of tack­ling cli­mate change.

In to­tal, more than six mil­lion peo­ple in the UK are ex­pected to turn off their lights, with Birm­ing­ham Cathe­dral among more than 12,000 land­marks and na­tional mon­u­ments world­wide sign­ing up to take part in the en­vi­ron­men­tal ex­trav­a­ganza.
