Haringey Council launched PARK ART in the grounds of Bruce Castle on Wednesday, as the Torch Relay ran through the borough.

A nine metre high classical lion — created as a "scaffolding structure" by Ben Long — now prowls Tottenham's Bruce Castle Park and the Tudor Hawk Tower out the front of the Castle itself is occupied by a light and sound installation by Martin Richman and Charlie Kerr.

In the south of the Borough you'll also find a sound sculpture created by Michael Szpakowski and local people in Furtherfield Gallery, Mackenzie Pavilion, Finsbury Park.

Bruce Castle houses a brilliant small museum which is open Wednesday - Sunday 1-5pm, free admission.
