On Saturday 28 March, the iconic twin-domes of the ORNC will be plunged into darkness in support of WWF’s Earth Hour.

Since the first Earth Hour in 2007 the blackout has turned into one of the world’s biggest environmental celebrations involving hundreds of millions of people from across the world coming together in a symbolic and spectacular light outs display.

The world-wide blackout will begin at 20.30 as individuals, businesses and landmarks are all invited to switch off their lights for one hour. Last year the ORNC took part alongside 280 other landmarks, including Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge, Houses of Parliament and many more. This year is set to be the biggest blackout yet, with over 7000 towns and cities in 152 countries taking part in the biggest environmental display.
