The 'Curtain of Poppies' marks the end of WW1 and WW2 and commemorates each person from the UK who died serving their Country.

During the first World War, one of the ways women at home showed their patriotism and 'did their bit' to support the troops overseas was by knitting gloves, hats, balaclavas and socks for the soldiers.

All the Poppies in this textile installation have been made by members of 'Norfolk Knitters' to mark the Centenary of WW1 and will be displayed at the entrance to the St Saviour's War Memorial Chapel. This will enable the public to walk through a 'Curtain of Poppies' into the Chapel.

St Saviour's War Memorial Chapel is accessible during the Cathedral's normal opening hours of 7.30am - 6.00pm, however it is occasionally in use for services throughout the week.
