New locations for Poppies tour announced

29 November 2015

Three new venues to host the iconic poppy sculptures Wave and Weeping Window in 2016

We’re pleased to announce that the next three venues to host the iconic poppy sculptures Wave and Weeping Window in 2016 are Lincoln Castle, the Black Watch Museum in Perth and Caernarfon Castle. Each has a powerful connection to the First World War and this will be the first chance to see the Poppies in Scotland and Wales.

Jenny Waldman, Director of 14-18 NOW, says: ‘We are delighted that we can now take the poppies to more places across the UK over the next three years, presenting a wonderful opportunity for even more people to experience these wonderful sculptures. I am hugely grateful to the Government for enabling this landmark tour to happen. We are also very grateful to the Backstage Trust, Clore Duffield Foundation, Heritage Lottery Fund and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport for their continued support, and to our transport sponsor DAF Trucks.’

Additional fundraising for the presentations is ongoing.
