  Comic Relief paints the town red!
Updated 07 February 2003, 19.08

What's tall, pointy and bright red?

The Telecom tower in London, of course!

It's been turned scarlet to publicise the start of the Comic Relief 2003 appeal.

The day itself will be on 14 March.

Big Hair

This year's "thing" isn't going to be the just usual red nose. The organisers want you to go barmy with your barnet as well.


Other events planned for the night include

  • celebrity Fame Academy
  • turning the Welsh National Botanic Garden into a giant red nose
  • Gareth Gates performing his Comic Relief single Spirit in the Sky

Since its beginnings in 1985, Comic Relief has raised over 200m.
