Our Poppy Days

Some of our largest Poppy Appeal events are annual Poppy Days held in cities across the country.

Local communities dedicate a day to distributing poppies and getting the public involved through activities and entertainment. 

This year, Poppy Day is taking place in:

  • London: 29 October

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel this year’s regional City Poppy Days that were scheduled to take place in Cardiff, Bristol, Leeds, Birmingham and Manchester. 

This decision has been taken to safeguard our staff, volunteers and members of the public in the unprecedented challenges that Covid-19 poses for this year’s Poppy Appeal.

Whilst disappointing for all concerned, we would like to stress that this decision has not been taken lightly and hopes that anyone affected understands why this decision has been made at this time. We are committed to delivering these events in 2021, subject to further Covid-19 restrictions.

London Poppy Day planning is currently continuing and we are currently hopeful that appropriate measures can be implemented so that London Poppy Day can still take place, although subject to restrictions.

If you would like any further information please get in touch with your local Legion contact or email londonpoppyday@britishlegion.org.uk.
