Join Blue Badge Guide Robin Draper for a unique tour of the Jewellery Quarter Cemeteries, in honour of Armistice Day. Both Key Hill and Warstone Lane Cemeteries contain stories of war and remembrance- linked to war graves, family memorials and the war memorials in both cemeteries. Learn about soldiers, civilians and the impact of war on the cemeteries themselves.

We’ll meet outside the Rose Villa Tavern and walk across to the cemeteries together for this tour which will take around 90 minutes. Although the paths in the cemeteries have been resurfaced, some of the graves on the tour are away from the paths and so we recommend you wear sturdy footwear. The tour takes place outside so please dress appropriately for the weather.

Places are limited to allow social distancing so please book early to avoid disappointment. If you test positive for Covid-19 or need to self isolate, please contact us to arrange a refund.

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!
