Earth Hour - Saturday 27 March 8.30pm

In 2009 hundreds of millions of people around the world turned off their lights for one hour. Landmarks also turned off, from the Great Pyramids to the Eiffel Tower, from the Coliseum to Beijing’s Olympic Stadium, from Buckingham Palace to the Norwich cathedral.

Earth Hour Co-Founder Andy Ridley, who was born in Norwich, said “By turning the lights off their landmarks for Earth Hour, cities are reflecting the aspirations of their citizens as a community that has resolved to take action on global warming. That’s what Earth Hour is about; communities showing what they can achieve by working together.”

For the last two years we have marked the hour with a celebration on the Millennium Plain outside the Forum. We have had an array of wonderful performances with organised and impromptu music, juggling, fire poi and mime artists.

We shall be gathering outside the Forum for Earth Hour, so if a candlelit dinner doesn’t appeal, come down and join us for an hour of entertainment. We are also encouraging people to bring a candle (in a jar), and for those of an artist persuasion an instrument. Furthermore if you feel that you could contribute to creating an event please feel free to contact me (Gary Champion/NR3).
Pledge your support at EarthHour.org and turn off your lights for one hour, at 8.30pm, Saturday 27th March 2010. garychampion@googlemail.com
