The Big Peg
The Big Peg, 120 Vyse Street
Birmingham, West Midlands B14 4LD United Kingdom
+ Google Map

This free walk is funded by the Jewellery Quarter Cemeteries project in partnership with National Lottery Heritage Fund, Birmingham City Council and Jewellery Quarter Development Trust.

Lukas Large, Natural Science Curator from Birmingham Museums Trust will lead you around the cemeteries, with chances to learn about the wonderful world of fungi and why they are so important.

This guided walk will last up to 2 hours and may include walking on uneven ground, because the best fungi might not be near the pathways. What we look at will vary according to the season and where the walk takes us. We will meet outside The Big Peg and then walk over to the cemeteries together.

This walk is FREE but places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment. This event takes place outside and social distancing will be encouraged, but you may want to bring a face covering or mask to wear during the session to allow the group to gather closer to the fungi.

Jewellery Quarter Cemeteries Project


We had an amazing day yesterday at the @jqbid #jqfestival collaborating with @jo_gane1 @suslifeuk @dontgointothecellar and of course the @friendskeyhillwarstonelanecem meeting so many amazing people

We couldn't have done it without everyone's help, including loads of support behind the scenes from @bhamcitycouncil @coffin_works @thehivejq and all the amazing #JQHeritageSquad volunteers.

Now we need to sleep for a week but then we'll be buzzing with ideas for 2023!

We are very excited about 'Diamonds in the Rough' a unique tour with storytelling & live performance, exploring queer history in the JQ Cemeteries for LGBT History Month.
