Tens of thousands of ceramic poppies, exhibited for the first time at the the Tower of London , will find a permanent home in Manchester. They will be placed next to the Imperial War Museum of the North which is located in Manchester, in a 60 metres cascade.

Everything should be ready for the 10 November, shortly before Memorial Day, which it is part of the programming that recalls the Armistice of the First World War.

The museum will be the permanent home of the installation, which was originally called the Tower of London’s Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red.

888,246 poppies were London in the 2014, with each flower representing a British or Commonwealth soldier lost at the front during WWI. The mass of poppies was  divided into smaller installations, which toured 19 locations in the United Kingdom in the following years.
