The Jewellery Quarter Heritage Squad are a collective of volunteers who give their time to help the different heritage organisations in the Jewellery Quarter. Led by The Hive, they have worked with Scott Johnston to form the JQ Heritage Film Squad, which explores enjoyment and inclusivity through participatory filmmaking.

This film represents a range of organisations including The Hive, JQ Cemeteries, St Paul’s Church and the Coffin Works.  This film brings together the volunteers knowledge and passion for the area and its unique heritage, whilst sharing some fascinating facts and quirky history!

The film will screen on YouTube, and will be followed by a short discussion on Zoom with some of the JQ Heritage Squad volunteers and the team involved in the project. The links will be sent to attendees shortly before the event.

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.
