The collection raised more than £1,000, which will all go towards employment support for the ex-Forces community. What a great performance!**


Ahead of Armed Forces Week in June, The Poppy Factory has partnered with Richmond Theatre to offer our supporters the chance to win two tickets to its new production of a classic wartime story by Michael Morpurgo.

Private Peaceful, which runs from June 20-25, tells the story a country lad fighting a war he doesn’t understand. It follows a soldier called Thomas “Tommo” Peaceful as he looks back on his life from the trenches in France during the First World War.

Make your booking before June 15 for any future visit to The Poppy Factory, and we’ll automatically enter you into a draw to win two tickets, PLUS a copy of the book signed by the author. All you need to do is book your visit!

What’s more, our friends at Richmond Theatre are offering our supporters the opportunity to buy tickets for Private Peaceful at a special discounted price. Simply go to the Richmond Theatre website and use the promo code POPPYFACTORY for exclusive £11 tickets.

Alongside groups of 25+ visits, we are running a series of discovery sessions at The Poppy Factory for individuals and smaller groups, with places available on Monday May 30 (11am and 2.30pm), Monday 13 June (3pm) Monday 27 June (3pm), Monday 22 August (3pm) and Monday 19 September (3pm).
