A Day of Reflection at the Weeping Window Memorial
Liverpool fell silent today at 11am to remember our war dead. Over 3000 people congregated outside St George’s Hall as the Weeping Window display became the focal point for remembrance.
Weeping Window, a moving installation of ceramic poppies, has been on display on the façade of St George’s Hall from Saturday 7 November and is part of the installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red which was showcased at HM Tower of London in 2014.
The artwork will be on display in the city for ten weeks and organisers have recruited a large team of Event Ambassadors to make sure visitors receive an exceptional service when they come to see the poppies.
The role of the Ambassadors are to welcome, inform and engage with members of the public and any volunteers are given full training, guidance and supervision and also got to meet the team behind the work before it officially opened last week.
Today we met two of the ambasadors Jenny and Sandra who are working on the display until 16th January, when they are removed to go on tour around the UK.
