A free tree walk with Sustainable Life in the Jewellery Quarter Cemeteries

Victorian cemeteries are full of different trees and are a great place to learn about many of our native species as well as a variety of more exotic imports. Join Sustainable Life, the brilliant brains behind our new tree trail to meet the trees, learn how to identify them, plus understand their uses and value as wildlife habitat.

We’ll meet outside the Big Peg and walk over to the cemeteries together. This free event is an outdoor walk and social distancing will be observed but you might wish to bring a mask or face covering to allow the group to gather around and look at examples together more easily. Places are limited and booking is essential.

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.
Join Sheldon K Goodman and
