Hear the powerful poetry of Tony Walsh alongside poignant imagery from our collections in a brand new Big Picture Show.
As part of Making a New World, a major season of exhibitions and events at IWM North marking the final year of the First World War Centenary, acclaimed Mancunian poet Tony Walsh has written and recorded a poem specially for our Big Picture Show. The new poem, Mightier Than War, explores the triumph of the human spirit in times of conflict through his unique and enthralling storytelling.
The Big Picture Show is an immersive surround sound and 360 degree projection that brings personal experiences of conflict to life. Tony's words are accompanied by historic film footage and photographs projected onto the 27-foot-high walls of our Main Exhibition Space, immersing visitors in a moving, cinematic experience.
