An invitation to view Whitehaven's Poppies


The Beacon Museum in Whitehaven is inviting the public to view their striking Field of Poppies that is taking pride of place outside the museum.

The poppies were created by hundreds of local schoolchildren and members of the public in 2018 to mark 100 years since the 1918 armistice.

They were created out of recycled plastic in conjunction with the the museum’s remembrance exhibition, A Brave New World: The Armistice and Beyond, which gave local school pupils the opportunity to investigate the statues, crosses, plaques, memorial halls, parish rooms and stained glass windows situated in many locations throughout West Cumbria.

As a legacy for the project, each school involved received a silhouette, funded by the charity There But Not There, for installation in their school or community space.

Schools who participated were: Bransty, St Bega’s, Gosforth, Mayfield, Bookwell, Dearham, Maryport, Moor Row, Thornhill, Orgill, St Bridget’s, Broughton and, Black Combe.

The poppies will be on display outside until the end of November.

The museum will also be lit up red from today (Monday) until Thursday for the Remembrance period.
