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
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

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:

  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
