Spring is a great time for bird watching, because migratory birds who visit Britain in the winter will be preparing to leave, and later in the season all the summer migrants will be just arriving. Our native birds will be busy nesting and raising chicks too so there is always lots to see.

The cemeteries are beautiful in Autumn with crisp and crunchy fallen leaves everywhere, and all kinds of interesting fungi sprouting up overnight!

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.
