The factory runs a visit programme throughout the year suitable for adults, groups and schoolchildren. The standard adult tour consists of a presentation on the origins of the factory and a tour. The standard school visit consists of a presentation, tour and the chance, time permitting, for the children to make poppies. Tours normally last 1½ to 2 hours and although there is no charge for the visit donations are most welcome.
Over the Remembrance period we host an Autumn School Visit Programme which also includes an interactive presentation.
During this programme tours last 2 hours, however we can be flexible with timings etc.
Please note the presentation is held in a room which is on the first floor and access is via one flight of stairs. We are very flexible and if access is problematic we offer a visit around the factory less the presentation if necessary.
If you wish to book a tour please complete the form below and note: visits on a Friday morning are restricted to the School Visit Programme only from 22nd October to 16th November 2018 inclusive visits are restricted to schools only due to our Autumn School Visit Programme.
