Remembrance Day 11 November

Commemorate Poppy Day with Old Low Light’s First art remembrance installation.

balcony-with-poppiesOld Low Light volunteers from North and South Tyneside as well as visitors who were looking to pay tribute to those who have lost their lives in WWI and subsequent conflicts have come together with wool, needles and crochet hooks to create over 1000 hand-made poppies.

We have collaborated with local fishermen to create two trailing fishing nets with 1000 poppies for our viewing platform as a visual reminder of the sacrifices made by the men from the Tyne.

If you would like to purchase one of our poppies to either wear, or to donate to our installation in memory of a loved one, then please come along to the Old Low Light before Friday.   All proceeds will be donated to Royal British Legion.
