The Leaves of the Trees
From 5 - 31 August, we're looking forward to hosting The Leaves of the Trees - an installation of 5,000 steel 'Hope' leaves, as a reflective memorial to the effects of the pandemic. The installation is designed to honour those who have lost their lives, but also to allow everyone to take a moment to contemplate what we have been through and to think about loved ones.
As part of this, 60 Worcestershire and Dudley schools have used paper leaves to create their own displays based on the exhibition. From 5 August visitors will be able to view a selection of these designs and add your own HOPE leaf to our paper display in the Dean’s Chapel.
