About Us is a spectacular show taking you on a thrilling journey through 13.8 billion years of history, from the Big Bang to the present day.
What is About Us?
About Us is part of UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK, 10 major creative commissions that have been enjoyed by millions through events in more than 100 locations across the UK and across digital and broadcast platforms this year.
When and where About Us is taking place?
From 16 to 19 November, the Tower of London is to become the canvas for a story spanning 13.8 billion years of history, from the Big Bang to the present day. The iconic landmark will be transformed by About Us, a spectacular lightshow that combines live choirs from across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales performing an original score by acclaimed composer and musician Nitin Sawhney CBE, poetry by leading poets and schoolchildren and a multimedia installation.
Shows will run every 30 minutes between 5.30pm and 9.30pm each evening, in front of the Tower of London gift shop, and it will be free to attend.
Creativity in the UK is funded and supported by the four governments of the UK and is commissioned and delivered in partnership with Belfast City Council, Creative Wales, and EventScotland. About Us is presented at the Tower of London with thanks to Historic Royal Palaces.
