This year Poppyscotland have teamed up with Glow TV to bring you a series of events about remembrance. The event entitled ‘Meet Those Involved’ is the second event in this series and will be held on Thursday 8th November at 2pm.
On 5th November there was a special event that took place in Edinburgh. This is your chance to see footage from this event which was the opening of the Garden of Remembrance and take part in a question and answer session with staff from Poppyscotland and Lady Haig’s Poppy Factory.
The panel who will be there to answer your questions and tell you about what remembrance means to them includes veterans from recent wars – remembrance isn’t just about World Wars 1 and 2.
The third event in the series takes place on Friday 9th November when you can join us live in Glow TV from 10am for a special Remembrance Day event. This year Education Services in Glasgow have organised a city wide remembrance service for schools in Glasgow City Chambers. The event will link the important civic aspects of remembrance and allow young people to better understand the range of issues involved. The programme will involve pupils from across the city encompassing drama, poetry and music. Sign up and join us for this thought provoking event.
