Family Fun: Remembrance Poppies

Family Activity – A Gentle Introduction to Remembrance Day

11th Nov 2023
2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Why do people wear poppies in November? Why do we hold a 2 minute silence? What’s a cenotaph? It’s not easy to talk about the reality of war with young children but as poppies are a common sight leading up to Remembrance Day, you may feel it is an appropriate time to answer some of these questions and tentatively explore the topic.

Ilkley Manor House will be making remembrance poppies on Saturday 11th November to think about those who lost their lives in conflict, show support, and as a symbol for a peaceful future.
