The projections will form part of the build up to the midnight fireworks display at The London Eye, which is being organised by the Greater London Authority and is being created by internationally renowned pyrotechnician Christophe Berthonneau.
The celebrity projections have been devised in partnership with The Prince’s Trust, which helps unemployed young people gain skills to find work. The Trust’s young ambassadors, who have turned their lives around with the charity’s support, will also attend the display as VIP guests.
