Colyton Grammar School is throwing open its doors on Thursday evening (November 22), to give the public the opportunity to see its ‘poppy project’ exhibition.

The project is the culmination of 18 months’ work by students and staff who have created a display of almost 1,000 poppies, each mounted with an individual message.

Alongside the poppies is a magnificent display of WWI memorabilia belonging to the school’s groundsman, Trevor Postin. The exhibition will be open from 5pm to 7pm and admission is free.

People are asked to park in the main school car park (near the sports pitches) and follow signs to the library.

On the same evening the school’s music department is holding its annual ‘St Cecilia’s Day’ concert in the Cottrill Hall at 7pm. This popular event will feature most of the school ensembles - Orchestra, Chamber Choir, Junior Choir, String Ensemble, Junior Strings, Junior Jazz, Jazz Band and more. To purchase tickets contact the school on 01297 552327. Adults £5 / Children £1.
