Gunwharf Quays is due to host a six-foot signpost from the 7th June. The signage, located within the popular south-coast shopping centre, directs people towards a new piece of Hampshire artwork, at Hampshire’s Alice Holt Forest.
The Custody Code, created by artist Amanda Loomes, aims to reveal the life of those who work within the forests. These individual and unique stories will be shared within a film and shown throughout this summer, in specially designed huts in select forests around the country. The wooden signpost, with the aim of directing visitors towards the Alice Holt Forest, will be placed within a gabion on prime display within Gunwharf Quays.
Yvonne Clay, Senior Marketing Manager at Gunwharf Quays, said: “Our prime location in the heart of the south coast makes us well placed to help promote this local exhibition. We are expecting to welcome thousands of visitors throughout the summer and are thrilled to support this local project.”
With over 90 outlet stores and over 30 places to eat and drink, Gunwharf Quays attracts visitors from across the UK looking to explore the south coast. Local attractions including the Emirates Spinnaker Tower and Portsmouth Historic Dockyard all work together to put Portsmouth firmly on the map for visitors looking for an unforgettable day out.
The Alice Holt Forest is just a 33-mile drive from Gunwharf Quays and the exhibition runs for 4-6 weeks beginning the 7th June. For more information, please visit www.forestryengland.uk/100/custody-code
