New Poppy Field sculpture commission

Published on Thu 25 Nov 2021 at 00:00

Congratulations to Grandey’s Place resident Poppy Field, Sculptor and QEST Scholar, who has been commissioned to create bronze sculptures of Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Philip for the north and south porches of the Royal Albert Hall to celebrate its 150th anniversary.

The bronze figures – along with two new statues of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert – will be permanent additions to the historic London venue and will be unveiled next summer.

The figures will picture the royal couple as they were in the mid-1960s and will pay tribute to their lifetime of service.
