As part of Birmingham Heritage Week, a live session from Activity Programme Managers for two of the Jewellery Quarter heritage projects – Kate from Townscape Heritage and Josie from JQ Cemeteries.

They will be giving the latest updates on their projects, including the buildings which are undergoing extensive restoration works and the ongoing improvement works to Key Hill and Warstone Lane Cemeteries. Weather permitting, Kate and Josie will be doing the session live from the Jewellery Quarter, so join them for this one-off opportunity to get the latest lowdown on two of the city’s major National Lottery Heritage Fund projects.

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.
