Where Poppies Blow will be open daily, except Friday, from Saturday 10 March to Sunday 8 July with a first set of evocative exhibits, including the original manuscript of Edward Thomasís iconic poem Adlestrop and paintings by artist brothers Paul and John Nash. It will then be closed for a week for rehanging. A second set of exhibits will be on show from Monday 16 July to Sunday 28 October, among them Thomasís war diary, its pages bearing an eerie arc of creases created by the shell blast that killed him. Entry is free with admission to the house and garden.
