This year Halloween will be a very different because we won’t be able to go trick or treating or have big Halloween parties.
We wanted to create an event so we can all enjoy the magic of the season safely.
How to get involved with the Pumpkin Spectacular:
1. Have fun at home carving your pumpkin
2. Arrange a time to drop it off with us by emailing josie.wall@jqdt.org. We can accept pumpkins from 26th to 30th October but as our building is closed to the public during renovation works, you need to make an appointment so we can arrange to meet you.
3. We create a beautiful display of all the pumpkins in the unique and atmospheric surroundings of the catacombs at Warstone Lane Cemetery. We will make a film of the display featuring everyone’s creative pumpkins. You will be able to watch the film on our website, youtube and here on facebook.
We’ll email everyone who donates a pumpkin a link to watch the film on 31st October. to make sure you don’t miss it!
4. After the event the pumpkins will be donated to Highbury Orchard who will use them to feed wildlife and for composting. This means there is no waste generated by this event.
Please note that we cannot arrange the return of your pumpkin.

The Snowflake Trail is back for a 3rd year in Key Hill Cemetery and the weather laid on some real snow for us too!

The trail is free and open to everyone from 18th December until 1st January. Wrap up warm and explore, hunting for wooden snowflakes which hang from some of the trees forming a trail around the cemetery. Add the name of your loved one to our memory tree using the stars and snowflakes provided. Choose a decorative snowflake from the trail to take home for your own tree.

Please take care while walking as paths may be slippery in snowy, icy oe wet conditions. Please visit during daylight hours only.

Share your photos of your snowflake on your tree at home and tag us!

Key Hill Cemetery too far to travel? There are also snowflake trails at Lodge Hill Cemetery (18th Dec- 24th Dec), Lodge Hill Cemetery (18th Dec- 24th Dec) and Sutton Coldfield Crematorium (19th Dec - 24th Dec).
