WWI Commemoration Day

“At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.”


To mark the centenary of the armistice that ended World War One, Birmingham Botanical Gardens will be hosting a commemoration event, to include; a live theatre performance (aimed at 5-14 year olds), live music, local history, food and craft stalls, the unveiling of a commemorative poppy collage (created by visiting educational groups) and more.


Theatre performance times:

  2. `Living with the War` 2pm – 3.15pm

(Please note: theatre performances require attendance for their entirety and are unsuitable for children under 5. All other children must be accompanied by an adult.)


Normal admission applies, with a £2 per person charge for the theatre performance. However, a donation from the proceeds will be made by the Gardens to the Royal British Legion charity.
