Look after the cemeteries, make them beautiful and help create a haven for wildlife with native flowers, by planting woodland plants.

Join the JQ Cemeteries Project and Friends of Key Hill and Warstone Lane Cemeteries to help look after the cemeteries, make them beautiful and help create a haven for wildlife with native flowers.

We’ll be clearing the fallen leaves and branches from last year and planting woodland plants including Primroses in Key Hill and Warstone Lane Cemeteries.

We’ll be meeting outside The JQBID booth on The Big Peg on Golden Square each time to pick up our equipment – hi vis vests, gloves, gardening tools and plants provided. No experience necessary – training will be provided.

Thursday 10th June – 10am to 12noon in Key Hill Cemetery

Saturday 12th June – 11am to 1pm in Warstone Lane Cemetery or 2pm to 4pm in Key Hill Cemetery

We’ll be ensuring that social distancing guidelines are followed to keep everyone safe, and places are limited to avoid overcrowding.

If you have any symptoms of Covid-19 please let us know so we can cancel your ticket. If you are travelling from outside the Jewellery Quarter please walk, cycle or use your own vehicle if possible. Face coverings are required on public transport.

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.
Join Sheldon K Goodman and
Sacha Coward from @thecemeteryclub
on 12th-14th February:
