The Leaves Of The Trees: A Reflective Coronavirus Memorial

3rd December 2020 @ 2:30 pm - 3rd January 2021 @ 6:00 pm

‘The Leaves of the Trees’ was created to honour those who have passed away during the pandemic, while also giving us all an opportunity to reflect on our collective experience.

Chester Cathedral will be hosting the nationally touring memorial by Peter Walker from 3 December 2020.

Designed to be a reflective memorial to the pandemic, the installation is made up of 5,000 steel leaves which will be laid out in the Chapter House, like fallen autumn leaves.  Appearing as though naturally scattered by the wind, the leaves symbolise the past and what has transpired.

Opening times are to be confirmed.  To receive updates about this installation, sign-up to our regular Enewsletter here.
