First look at BBC party setting revealed at Palace
Images of a spectacular 360 degree set for the star-studded Platinum Jubilee pop concert have been unveiled for the first time.
The structure will surround the Queen Victoria Memorial in front of Buckingham Palace when 22,000 people, including members of the Royal Family, gather to watch the BBC’s Platinum Party at the Palace on the evening of June 4th.
An artist’s impressions and animated shots show the structure stretching in a circle around the historic monument, with the palace in the background projected with an image of a Union flag, a large portrait of the Queen and with lights shining hundreds of feet into the Deep shine night sky.
Two more stages – connected to the round stage by a footbridge – will be erected in front of the palace railings.
Construction began earlier this week to provide 15,000 standing places around the memorial and 7,000 seats in the north and south stands.
The concert promises to feature some of the world’s biggest pop and rock stars, with a full cast to be announced by the BBC in the coming weeks.
George Ezra will perform at the high-profile event, which will be broadcast live on BBC One.
Around 10,000 people were allocated tickets in a public vote, and a further 5,000 tickets were reserved for key workers.
