During June, I attended some jazz concerts and one of the venues had a poppy display on the front steps.
|Poppies welcome visitors to the Elder Conservatorium.|
|A closer view of the leaflet |
which includes a program of events
and the poem by John McCrea,
"In Flanders Fields".
You can follow the 'Poppy Trail' from 2 June to 30 August 2016. The trail is an event comprising a series of exhibitions, lectures, film screenings and concerts to commemorate the contributions of Australian, Belgian, French and allied forces in World War 1.
More background information and a program of events can be found in the links below or in the leaflets which are attached to the poppies along the trail.
