Great review from Georgia 

'I asked the Wild Poppy Bar to be at my 21st birthday party. 

Laura talked with me about what I wanted so that it was bespoke to me, 

this included 3 varieties of gin shimmer cocktails!

The horse box looked amazing on the night and along with Laura’s personality and hard work it quickly became the hub of the party.

Thank you so much for everything you did to make it the best night ever!!'


Great Gatsby themed 21st in the pouring rain. 36 hours of relentless rain didn't stop us. Strategically placed umbrellas and Wild Poppy was dry and 

ready to welcome 100 guests to Georgia's 21st. 


Wild Poppy themed the drinks according to the Great Gatsby era, serving: 


Mint & Elderflower Julep

Gin, Elderflower Cordial, Soda, Ice, Mint & Cucumber


French 75 

Gin, Lemon Juice, Sugar Syrup, Splash of Lemonade & Garnished with a lemon.

What an eventful start with our first wedding. Wild Poppy was lucky with the weather and the Steam Punk theme made for some fabulous outfits. Wild Poppy fitted right in. 150 glasses of champagne poured and several people converted to Gin. Wicked Wolf was a hit with many of the guests coming from the West Country 


20th July 2019  

What a great day. Weather was perfect for Gin drinking and watching the cricket. 

80+ deserving volunteers paid us a visit to sample our finest gins. Tanquerey Seville Orange went down really well; refreshingly zesty and perfect for the occasion.  Wild Poppy was pleased to welcome some  Gin Virgins and even happier to convert them. 

Wild Poppy's mission continues :)

Looking forward to our next adventure at Trojans Club to serve some gorgeous gin concoctions to some deserving volunteers whilst appreciating some cricket. Fingers crossed for the weather


30th June 2019

Now for a Wild Poppy's first adventure.  Where better than an Arabian Stallion Stud Farm, Georgian Arabians.  Invited down to help with a charity fundraiser for Lasting Life, The Simon MacCorkindale Legacy,  we pitched up to supply the refreshments for the 125 invited guests.  The beautiful horses seemed Wild to see us although our flag was a casualty as it spooked the horses - first lesson learnt :)

The morning after the night before .....  How luck was Wild Poppy.  The weather held up  and our guests enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and our delicious gins.  A few hours passed and Wild poppy's launch was deemed a HIT 


15th June 2019

The day is here. The weather is holding up, the fridge is stocked, the garnishes watered, ice freezing and the glasses chilling. All we need now are guests


10th June 2015

5 days to go til the launch party. A few things to do!!! Screwdriver in hand, sander on standby, off we go.


23rd May 2019 - 

Count down begins  - 23 days til our first event 8 days til our trial afternoon ...  Bartops have arrived back and our amazing carpenter has breathed life back in to some well trodden scaffold boards. First wax and the boards are singing. Love it love it love it ....


16th May - 

more painting and having fun with the painting our splashback.  Best to not stand too close to us today as we have the midas touch!  In the meantime we have given her some sparkle with some brilliant copper paint and touched up her frame  with hammerite black paint which has a gorgeous copper fleck in it. Who'd have thought paint would be sexy!! 

 

Returned with a reclaimed wood side bar built we turned our attention to the rest of the inside. The rubber matting was unbelievably heavy so that was taken out and revealing her stunning wooden floor in great condition. Love it love it love it ....  So lucky that Wild Poppy Floor is in top condition and  all she needs is  a light sand a  sealing


May 19  - 

Well the weather hasn't been great and its been too cold - polar opposite to last year!   We have  sent off the  reclaimed scaffold board to be transformed in to a bespoke  bar top. Due to be delivered back to Wild Poppy on the 23rd - can't wait. 


Apr '19 - 

the build begins. A sunny afternoon in Fair Oak and we strip Wild Poppy, give her a clean and a touch up and plan our  brilliant space 


Mar ' 19

Wild Poppy mark I failed to make it home so sadly we had give her a new home, let her put her wheels up and her tail down in a field in Wiltshire. 

Our search began again. Didn't take us long to find Wild Poppy Mark II.We are converting Wild Poppy from a shabby, three legged horse trailer in to a bespoke, pop-up bar, serving the fun fuel of your choice, wherever you are. 


Jan '19 

Nothing beats the January blues quite like a spontaneous horse box purchase! The Wild Poppy adventure began on January 23rd 2019, with a 12 hour round trip to collect our new baby. One missing wheel later and the road to discovering her true purpose is well under way. 


Just keeps on rolling, rolling, rolling .......
