Poppies: Weeping Window

Caernarfon Castle was the first location in Wales to host Poppies: Weeping Window by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper.

Poppies: Weeping Window is a cascade comprising several thousand handmade ceramic poppies, and was originally seen pouring from a high window to the ground below at the Tower of London as part of the installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red.

Caernarfon Castle, part of the Castles and Town Walls of King Edward in Gwynedd World Heritage Site, was built in the Middle Ages for King Edward 1 of England. The Castle hosted a number of First World War commemoration events over the remaining three years of the Centenary, contributing to the Cymru’n Cofio Wales Remembers 1914-1918 national centenary programme of remembrance. It is home to the Royal Welch Fusiliers Museum, housed in two of its towers, and was as a result considered an appropriate and relevant site to host the exhibition and supporting programme of activities, which was managed and developed in conjunction with the Royal Welch Fusiliers and (the Welsh Centre for International Affairs’) “Wales for Peace” programme.
