This morning, artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper officially unveiled Poppies: Wave at IWM North in Manchester.

IWM North is the final location for the sculpture on the UK wide Poppies Tour which has been seen by over 4 million people.

Purpose-built to tell the powerful stories of over a century of conflict, IWM North makes full use of its extraordinary exhibition space to deliver an award-winning immersive experience that explores how war shapes lives.

Poppies: Weeping Window will be displayed at IWM London from 5 October before both sculptures become part of the Imperial War Museums’ collection.
