Harrogate’s West Park Stray is to play host to a visually stunning touring art installation, from award winning artist Luke Jerram.
Measuring 36m in diameter, it features more than 100 flags made from hospital bed sheets arranged in the form of a medical symbol and is designed as a temporary memorial to those we have lost over the last 15 months. In Memoriam is also a tribute to frontline NHS staff and care workers who have constantly put their lives at risk during the ongoing pandemic.
Delivered by Harrogate International Festivals and supported by The Harrogate BID, alongside Hornbeam Park, Swainsons Funeral Directors and The HACS Group, In Memoriam will be in situ in the town centre, from Friday, May 28 until Monday, June 7.
It is the first in a series of installations and events that Harrogate International Festivals – which this year celebrates its 55th anniversary – will be delivering and producing across the town in partnership with the Harrogate BID over the coming months.
