Weeping Window poppies at Woodhorn
Originally hosted by HM Tower of London, the iconic Weeping Window poppy sculpture is now on display at Woodhorn museum until Sunday 1 November 2015.
The cascade is one element of the installation ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’ which marked 100 years since the First World War, and Woodhorn is the first venue outside of London to host the display as part of a national tour organised by 14-18 NOW.
Councillor Grant Davey, leader of Northumberland County Council, said: “I’m delighted to welcome the Weeping Window to its first stop here at Woodhorn.
"After its tremendous success in London, the sculpture is recognised internationally as a symbol of British history and culture, which will continue to attract interest from all over the globe.
"This is a major accomplishment for Woodhorn, the town of Ashington and the rest of Northumberland."
