Following the success of the first ever, large scale commercial Ramadan lighting display in the UK in 2023, Field and Lawn have delivered a brand new scheme for Ramadan 2024. Earlier this month, The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan attended the activation event in the West End. Here is a collection of stunning images from this years display:

About the 2024 Ramadan lights IN London

The new display, located in Coventry Street is titled “Sundail” and is inspired by the transition from dawn to dusk during Ramadan. It represents the fasting experience with radiant suns and moons, forming a visual timepiece. The design features beautiful geometric patterns and hanging stars, paying homage to Islamic art. Over 30000 sustainable lights will illuminate the skies between Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square.

Ramadan ground features and selfie spots

Another new addition to this years display is an enchanting ground mounted illuminated Ramadan decoration on Edgeware Road.  Marble Arch London BID, in partnership with the The Portman Estate, have brought the first Ramadan light display to Edgware Road, installing an illuminated crescent moon ground mounted selfie spot at Nutford Place which will be in place until Wednesday 10 April.

The bespoke 2.9m tall light installation is a majestic walk-through experience, adorned with warm white LED lights and elegant gold insets. Emblazoned with the heartfelt message “Ramadan Mubarak,” symbolising blessings and goodwill. The display runs throughout Ramadan and will be illuminated each day between 6am-11pm. The feature is something that can be easily replicated in cities across the UK to spread the joy of Ramadan.  It has created a wonderful selfie spot for people to come together and celebrate Ramadan.

“It is really powerful, many non-Muslims are becoming increasingly curious about Ramadan and what it involves. It's spreading awareness in such a nice way through art and light installation. It was the idea that came from me but I encourage Muslims and people from other faiths to continue on and do it.”
