Where Poppies Blow

An evocative special exhibition commemorating the end of the First World War

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Where Poppies Blow tells the story of a doomed generation, including poet Edward Thomas, author of Adelstrop, who fought to protect the fields, flowers and birds of Britain. Curated by award-winning author John Lewis-Stempel, it reveals the importance of the British countryside and sense of place as an incentive to join up, and the solace nature afforded to men in the trenches. A first set of evocative exhibits will be on display until 8 July with a second set from 16 July. Closed 9-15 July.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points. Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission or
  • Standard admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid* — an extra 25 per cent — potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00

 

*Gift Aid donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.
