In commemoration of the 75th anniversary of VE Day and the part played in the Second World War by the people and places of the local community, Hartlebury based creative communications group DRPG lit up their 212 studios and global HQ building in red white and blue.

DRPG’s technical production and video teams collaborated from afar to project the Union Jack flag and footage from WW2 across the face of their historically significant building, flying the flag for Britain and celebrating the hard fought peacetime in Europe in a spectacular display of solidarity and hope. Focussing on the soldiers and people of the Second World War, the projection was a tribute to them and a sign that their sacrifices will never be forgotten.

It is so important, especially in times like these, to celebrate victory and the coming together of the people for good. We lit up our building in red, white a blue to demonstrate hope and we showcased those who took part in WW2 in remembrance of them and as a thank you for the sacrifices they made to achieve peace on this day 75 years ago. Our historical heritage has significantly influenced our purpose today: working together to inspire the communities and businesses of tomorrow.”
