With Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s State Funeral due to be held on Monday 19 September, we understand that many of our visitors and team members would like to pay their respects to Her Majesty at the end of this period of national mourning.
We have therefore taken the decision to close The Poppy Factory on 19 September. We are getting in touch to re-schedule your planned visit, and to invite you to a special discovery session featuring a live performance by the celebrated classical singer Carly Paoli.
Carly will join us to help mark 100 years of The Poppy Factory on Friday 7 October, with two performances in our visitor centre. These special discovery sessions will start at 11.30am and 2pm, and we would be delighted if you could join us for one of them.
