For the duration of the War Horse run at The Lowry, the venue will host two Tommy silhouettes in the foyer.
The six foot high Tommies are part of a nationwide art installation, There But Not There. The campaign is led by former Chief of the General Staff, Lord Dannatt and supported by Birdsong novelist, Sebastian Faulks. It is run by the charity Remembered, which aims to educate all generations about why they so many made the ultimate sacrifice, and to raise funds to help heal those suffering from the hidden wounds of war. Joey met the Tommies on his arrival to mark the opening of the show.
The Lowry are the first venue to host the Tommies and they will travel round with the rest of the tour to sit in the foyer or outside the theatre.
