The Leaves of the Trees
May 11 - June 6
The leaves of the trees are for the healing of the nations (Revelation 22:2)
We are delighted to announce that Southwell Minster will be hosting an artwork installation by the internationally acclaimed sculptor Peter Walker. The Leaves of the Trees is a reflective memorial to the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic. A simple but moving artwork creating a moment of connection and calm, this thought-provoking installation comes to Southwell Minster from 11 May – 6 June 2021 after previous spells at Exeter, Sheffield and Lichfield cathedrals in the latter half of 2020.
The project is designed to link directly to the sentiments of those who have experienced the pandemic, both those who have lost loved ones and those additionally or personally affected.
The installation allows individuals and families as well as communities to take time to consider the past periods of lockdown and isolation and provide a focal point for their thoughts, prayers and personal reﬂections.
Please remember to check the latest COVID-19 guidance before attending any event and contact the event organiser should you need any further information on the COVID-secure measures that will be put in place.
