Last autumn I viewed the iconic Weeping Window sculpture at the Tower of London. Seeing the integral part of British history (the Tower) swathed in red then surrounded by onlookers was quite a sight.

This piece of art, created by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper has arrived in the North East and is on display at Woodhorn Museum from tomorrow until November 1st.

The link between the North East’s coal mining history and the First World War, makes this installation a must-see. Go to Woodhorn and reflect.
