Weeping Window opens tomorrow at St George’s Hall, Liverpool

6 November 2015

It’s been a busy five days for the team installing Poppies: Weeping Window – which was still on show at Woodhorn Museum last weekend – and we’re delighted to see how spectacular it looks in its new home.

Opening in time for Remembrance Sunday, Poppies: Weeping Window can now be seen at St George’s Hall, the Grade I listed building in the heart of Liverpool. A building with a unique history all of its own, it is famous for being the rallying point for the Liverpool PALS Battalions in the First World War, part of Lord Kitchener’s Army.

Poppies: Weeping Window is on show in Liverpool until 17 January 2016.
