100,000 Poppies

November 6th – December 21st


Following the overwhelming response to the 5,000 Poppies project which ultimately saw over 20,000 knitted, crocheted and felt poppies crafted by local people displayed at the Museum in the autumn of 2017, the project team is aiming for 100,000 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the WW1 armistice.

Details of how you can get involved in hand crafting poppies either at home, at organised events or informal drop-in sessions coming soon.

5,000 Poppies began in 2013 as a small personal tribute by two Australian women, Lynn Berry and Margaret Knight, to honour their fathers who both fought in World War II and has become an international phenomenon, remembering those who have served in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations, their families and their communities.

The exhibition is co-ordinated by Medway Fun Palaces and Nucleus Arts
