Poppy Factory 90th Birthday Party

It’s Lady Haig’s Poppy Factory 90th Birthday Party on Sunday the 24th of July!

For 90 years a team of disabled veterans has hand produced all of the iconic remembrance poppies and poppy wreaths in Scotland.  Here at the Lady Haig Poppy Factory in Cannonmills is where the magic happens!

To celebrate this amazing milestone, the doors of this truly unique venue are being opened to the public for a very special event and fundraiser.

As well as celebrating in style, you’ll also be helping to provide vital support to today’s Armed Forces community, with all proceeds from the event going to help continue Poppyscotland’s life-changing and urgent work.

Tickets to the Poppy Factory 90th Birthday Party are £25 and include:

  • A tour of the Poppy Factory by the poppy makers themselves!
  • A poppy making master class!
  • Prosecco afternoon tea
  • Live entertainment
  • An opportunity to win an exclusive VIP experience at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo
