Type: Installation, Spectacle
Luke Jerram’s ceremonial art installation has been created as a memorial to those we have lost in the COVID-19 pandemic. The artwork has also been made in tribute to the NHS staff and volunteers who have worked so tirelessly to care for so many. Created from bed sheets, In Memoriam is intended to be an evocative symbol of local, national and international solidarity, as a space for reflection, remembrance, and recognition.
There is level access in and around the installation. Trackway will be provided for grassy areas.
A priority area for disabled audiences will be marked with a sign or flag. Space for wheelchair users, and a variety of seating options will be available on request. GDIF volunteers will offer directions.
Blue badge parking
