As we gear up for Birmingham Heritage Week, join Dennis Cluley, who has been working in the Jewellery Quarter since 2007, for a short and informative tour exploring Key Hill and Warstone Lane cemeteries on a Friday evening.

A fantastic chance to explore the newly restored cemeteries and learn about famous faces from Birmingham past who found their final resting places in the Jewellery Quarter, including John Baskerville who died once and was buried three times!

This tour is free but booking via eventbrite is essential as places are limited to ensure social distancing. We will meet outside The Rose Villa Tavern at 6pm and walk over to the cemeteries together.

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!
