Poppies: Weeping Window opens at the Senedd, Cardiff

Poppies: Weeping Window opens at the Senedd, Cardiff

Today, artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper unveiled Poppies: Weeping Window at the Senedd in Cardiff. The official public opening of the sculpture is tomorrow, Tuesday 8 August. The sculpture will remain at the Senedd until Sunday 24 September 2017. This is the third location of Weeping Window on the 2017 Poppies tour, and the second time the sculpture has been on display in Wales.

The Senedd is the home of democracy in Wales, where elected Members of the National Assembly for Wales debate issues that affect Welsh life. Situated in Cardiff Bay looking out over a panorama of sky and water, the Senedd belongs to the people of Wales.

The National Assembly for Wales is holding a series of events to commemorate the centenary of the First World War over the four-year period. Poppies: Weeping Window forms part of this commitment, contributing to the national centenary programme of remembrance. As the focal point of Welsh public life, and a symbol of democracy in Wales and the United Kingdom, it is fitting that the Senedd is hosting Weeping Window.
