This shopping centre installation celebrates


accessible art that has always been at the heart of the town.


Depicted as a stage set here, the idea is for


you to go out and find the originals yourself.


I think art is always about thinking about what might come next.


Milton Keynes is also a town that was following a similar thought


process, how can you construct a space that will also work 50 years


I think it makes sense that integrated


art is in the fabric of its open architecture.

The wind be slightly mild initially, we'll have a lot of cloud.


Through the course of the day, the cloud will start to thin


and break, particularly for southern parts.


But we will hold onto the cloud cover into the afternoon and


temperatures in some places will reach just freezing.
