The catacombs at Warstone Lane cemetery are a fantastic venue for events with the circular walls forming a sheltered space with great acoustics.
We are filling them with music on a sunny Saturday afternoon. After 18 months of restrictions on live music, we thought this would be a fun way to help local artists to reach audiences again in a covid safe outdoor venue.
Free admission, come along from 2pm to 4.30pm, bring a chair or picnic blanket and listen to live music and poetry.
Line up:
2pm Hassan Ul-Haq
2.25pm Ellie Galvin
2.50pm Christie Reeves

Released to celebrate the Winter Solstice 2021, this video explores some of the nocturnal animals which make the Jewellery Quarter Cemeteries their home. They might be hard to spot, but we can often see the traces they leave behind.

Emily Doyle @oldbort is a multidisciplinary visual artist who moved to the Jewellery Quarter as a student in 2015 and never left. Her practice focuses on the biological, looking for comfort in the physicality that connects us all during changing times. Throughout lockdown, Warstone Lane and Key Hill Cemeteries have been a source of inspiration and respite for Emily and the sites have shaped her creative output through 2020 and 2021, Like many, she has found the JQ Cemeteries to be a place of grounding and reflection.

Sustainability is at the forefront of Emily's work. The textile sculptures in this film were all made using reclaimed textiles, including some sourced through Scrapstore Birmingham.

This film commission was funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund, Birmingham City Council and Jewellery Quarter Development Trust
