Head down to the Royal Armouries, where you'll find a display of armoured angel wings created by pupils of Gawber Primary School in Barnsley.

Inspired by the decorative armour of the Earl of Southampton, which is on display at the Royal Armouries, as well as the painting ‘Saint Michael Triumphant Over The Devil With The Donor Antonio Juan’, the pupils have produced special armoured angel wins in the Mannerist style, reflecting ideas of good and evil, as well as the dual purposes of protection and decoration.
