Event Details

The Danger Tree Exhibition

If you haven't had a chance to see our moving Danger Tree exhibition, there's still time - it has been extended until Sunday 11 November and will remain open to the public every Wednesday and Saturday, 10am-4pm, with specially extended hours in the lead-up to Armistice Day-including on Sunday 11 November.

This moving exhibition, telling an immersive story of the soldiers who fought and fell in WW1, commemorates WW1’s most iconic poets using the latest technology. Each painting in the exhibition triggers an augmented reality where layers of narrative tell harrowing tales of the lost and lamented, reminding us of the horror and futility of the Somme and the impacts on the loved ones left behind.

This ground-breaking augmented reality exhibition will now remain open until Armistice Day as part of the events in our Borough to mark the centenary of the end of WW1.

Here’s everything you need to know...

What is The Danger Tree?

The exhibition, which marks the centenary of the end of World War One, tells an immersive story of the soldiers who fought and fell.

Colourful oil paintings depicting fields of flowers evoke scenes of poppies that have become symbolic of the war. The skies and flower forms hint at something less literal and more ominous.

The pictures trigger an augmented reality, where narrative tells harrowing tales of the fallen, while reminding us of the impact on loved ones.

When and where can you see The Danger Tree?

The exhibition is open at Unit 24, Wellington Square Shopping Centre, Stockton-on-Tees every Wednesday and Saturday, 10am-4pm, with specially extended hours in the lead-up to Armistice Day. 

It will also be open on Sunday 11 November as part of the events in our Borough to mark the centenary of the end of WW1.

What makes this exhibition stand out from the rest?

The Danger Tree has toured the country, capturing the imagination with an augmented reality experience.

Through digital app Blippar, visitors can use a smartphone or tablet to scan the artwork and bring to life fascinating animation, music, and wartime poetry narrated by acclaimed actors including Vicky McClure and Sean Bean.

Who is behind The Danger Tree?

In association with The Royal British Legion, Scarlett Raven and Marc Marot present this stunning free interactive exhibition.

Marc said: “The Danger Tree combines traditional painting with interactive technology that fully engages people in the augmented reality experience.

“The paintings will be displayed in a bespoke set made to look like a shelled art gallery, which is being created for Stockton by award-winning film set designer, Kave Quinn. The overall effect will be visually striking.”

Entry is free, and headphones and iPads will be provided.
