London's 10-minute display over the Thames aired on the BBC at midnight, and began with a poem which addressed the pandemic, that said: "In the year of 2020 a new virus came our way; We knew what must be done and so to help we hid away."
Light projections lit up the sky over the O2 Arena, using 300 light drones - the UK’s largest and London’s first ever large-scale drone show.
Displays included the NHS logo in a heart accompanied by a child's voice saying: "Thank you NHS heroes".
The show also recognised Captain Sir Tom Moore, who raised £33m for the NHS by walking laps of his garden and the Black Lives Matter movement.
One 2020 phenomena - working from home - was represented with a mute logo backed by a voiceover saying "You're on mute".
