Unveiling Sculpture in the City
A new public sculpture commemorating Christ’s Hospital School’s 350 years presence in the City of London, was unveiled on 6 November by Alderman Sir Alan Yarrow, former Lord Mayor and member of the School’s governing Council. TateHindle negotiated planning permission for the bronze sculpture which is located in the Christchurch Greyfriars Church Garden. Created by Sculptor Andrew Brown, the sculpture depicts pupils wearing the distinctive Tudor uniform which is synonymous with Christ’s Hospital today, on a gently curving form to reflect the care and support provided to children.
Sir Alan Yarrow said: “It is a great honour to unveil a sculpture that marks not only a significant period in the history of Christ’s Hospital, but also celebrates life-changing education for the children who have crossed its threshold both in the City and in West Sussex.”
The new sculpture marks the southern tip of a sculpture trail which is planned to run north from Christchurch Greyfriars Church Garden. Read more about the unveiling here.
