As you step inside the ancient surround of Winchester cathedral, you will be enveloped in a sea of poppies tumbling down the old stone walls, some still baring their own lasting scars of wars they have weathered…

Within the installations is a moving tribute to the NHS, which looks at nursing through history and the roles of nurses such as Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole, and the role nurses play today.

As you approach the cathedral nave, before you reach the finale piece, there will be a moment for you to stop at the cathedral’s 16th Century ‘West Window’ as projections light-up the shattered glass, reflecting the symbolic human spirit to rebuild and survive.
