Our tours are temporarily closed from November 2019 to November 2020.

In November 2019 we stopped running tours due to planned refurbishment work of the factory, to make way for a new and improved visitor experience. If you wish to be notified when tour bookings become available after the building work, please email admin@poppyfactory.org.

We don't just make Remembrance poppies and symbols, we also support veterans with health conditions into employment.

The Poppy Factory’s employability team works year round to support our veterans into jobs. From giving advice to ex-Service men and women, to supporting businesses, we have it covered.
If you are ex-Forces and a health condition is making it tough to find a job, we are here to help you. Read more about how we can support you.
An underlying health condition does not impact on a veteran’s drive and ambition to achieve. Find out what skills a veteran can bring to your work place.

“The Poppy Factory was a brilliant find. The volunteer tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable and facilitating. We made a poppy in the factory and met some veterans employed there. It was fascinating to see the Royal Family’s wreaths and the different designs. Truly inspiring, humbling and educational.”

Our veterans’ stories

No two people’s experiences, skills or situations are ever the same. Complex health issues, such as PTSD or a physical injury developed during or after Service, can make it incredibly tough for veterans to find and sustain civilian work. That’s why the support we provide is tailored to suit each person. Meet our veterans
