Poppy umbrellas installed in Halifax town centre

Friday 19th October 2018

An eye-catching art installation has been created in Halifax as part of the town's activities leading up to this year's centenary Remembrance Day on November 11.

This year's Remembrance Day marks 100 years since the end of the First World War, and to mark it, 30 giant red poppy umbrellas have been carefully suspended above Princess Street in the town centre. The special poppy umbrellas replace conventional umbrellas which had already attracted pedestrians' attention over recent weeks.

The poppies are suspended high above the street near the starting point of the Remembrance Day Parade, which will begin outside Halifax Town Hall at 10.20am on Sunday, November 11.
