Art installation to be opened to the public
A SPECIAL art installation at Loughborough Grammar School is being opened up for public viewing this Saturday, December 8.
Loughborough Schools Foundation marked the Centenary of WWI with a one-of-a-kind art installation, designed and built by John Marsden, who is a member of staff at the school.
Commemorating the 58 Loughborough Grammar School boys who fell in the first world war, the installation combines 15 mechanical poppies which are engineered to open and close when people hover to read the plaques detailing some of the former pupils who lost their lives.
The installation is situated in the Orangery, in the Tower at Loughborough Grammar School and is open for the public to view between 10am and 12pm.
