Join Jewellery Quarter Cemeteries Project and Voice of the Town Choir for a Christmas celebration in the catacombs circle at Warstone Lane Cemetery.

Voice of the Town is a contemporary choir which performs some of the very best material from Soul, Gospel, RnB, Latin/Jazz, Pop and Rock genres, complete with exciting and bespoke arrangements consisting of powerful, punchy and lush harmonies. Voice of the Town have appeared on BBC television, with Take That (and Lulu) on 8 of their UK Greatest Hits tour dates, and toured with stars of Strictly Come Dancing at some of the UK’s most iconic venues. They’ll be bringing us their fantastic versions of all your favourite Christmas Classic songs.

We’ll also be celebrating the end of the fantastically successful Jewellery Quarter Cemeteries project, and thanking all our community partners and stakeholders for making the project possible over the last two years.

This free event takes place outside so please wrap up warmly. Lighting levels will be low, as the space will be lit with candles and lanterns, so please take extra care when moving around the cemetery. If you have any concerns or access requirements, please email josie.wall@jqdt.org

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
