War Horse Memorial – Virtual Concert

The War Horse Memorial Purple Poppy Appeal 2020: the virtual concert!

The show must go on!

Although the Purple Poppy Appeal 2020 has had to be shelved due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the good news is that WHM have found another way to bring their cause right into your homes…thanks to the magic of YouTube and the generosity of our celebrity friends. On Monday, June 8 at 8pm WHM will be screening a special, virtual Purple Poppy Concert.

The compere will be TV presenter and former Strictly winner, Chris Hollins, and it will feature well-loved artists and performers, including Britain’s Got Talent favourite Colin Thackery, actress Jenny Seagrove, soprano Christina Johnston and many others. They have all given their time and talents for free, and are recording their performances under strict social distancing guidelines. You will be able to join in for free – this is a concert open to all WHM Ambassadors, supporters – and animal lovers everywhere!
