Christmas is just around the corner, and our snowflake trail is back for a 2nd year!
Wrap up warm and take a wintery walk around Key Hill, hunting for snowflakes and crunching through a blanket of fallen leaves!
The cemetery has undergone extensive restoration including path resurfacing and drainage improvements, so there are plenty of buggy friendly routes and no muddy puddles.
Our snowflake trail has been made with wooden snowflakes and natural cordage (no plastic here) which will decorate areas of Key Hill Cemetery for you to discover.
After you visit the snowflakes at Key Hill Cemetery you can then choose one snowflake to take home with you to put on your Christmas tree. You can even decorate it with paint or other embellishments if you are feeling crafty!
We’d love to see where they end up, so share a photo of your snowflake with us on social media using #JQSnowflakes.
This event is FREE and open to all..
There are no handwashing or toilet facilities in the cemetery, so please bring hand sanitiser. The nearest public toilet is on Vyse St, about a 5 minute walk away.
The cemetery is accessible from the Key Hill and Icknield Street gates and is open 24/7. Please be aware that there is no lighting in the cemetery, so we do not recommend visiting after dusk.
The event will run from December 18th to January 4th and the cemetery and snowflake trail will be checked periodically, but if you encounter any issues, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know.
Want to know more? Watch the video we made for last year’s event! The main difference this year is that we have over 200 snowflakes this time and we’ve leaving the trail up until the new year to give you more time to go hunting!
