Event description


Join Brush Party and support this year’s Poppy Appeal by painting a poppy online with us for FREE!

We are holding an online live free event in support of the Royal British Legion on Sunday 25thOctober at 3pm… don’t worry if you can’t attend at that time, a recording will be available to watch until the end of the Poppy Appeal.

We would love everyone to paint or draw a poppy, upload to our Brush Party facebook page with the #poppyappeal and then display their work of art in a prominent window at home!

You can use whatever you have to hand… We are using paints – but felt tips, pencils or crayons are all perfect for creating a Poppy masterpiece.

Our special event will last approx 1 hour – It’s a great activity for everyone!
