Quarter Quiz

A fun introduction to the JQ Cemeteries and JQ Townscape Heritage projects with immersive VR experiences and a quiz to test your knowledge from the comfort of your home!

How to take Part

1. Watch Jewellery Quarter Talk Show

Join Ruth and Cecilia, students from BCU School of Jewellery, as they chat to Kate and Josie from two heritage projects which are happening in the Jewellery Quarter and learn more about the fascinating history of the area.

2. Explore Virtual Reality Experiences

JQ Townscape Heritage and JQ Cemeteries have worked with ScanTech Digital to create interactive experiences which allow users to explore the Alabaster & Wilson jewellery factory and Key Hill Cemetery in vivid detail. Can be used on your mobile, computer or VR headset for a fully immersive experience!

3. Take the Quarter Quiz

Use the quiz in conjunction with the VR tours to encourage deeper exploration. We recommend that you have the VR tours open while you take the quiz.


If you enjoyed this talk show and taking part in these activities, there are loads of other interesting places to visit and learn about in the Jewellery Quarter.

You can download these beautifully illustrated brochures for free, also created by Ruth and Cecilia.
Available in English and Mandarin Chinese. The brochures contain colour illustrations so the files are large – we recommend waiting until you have access to Wi-Fi to download them.

The Snowflake Trail is over now until Christmas 2023.
120 of you took a Snowflake home for your own tree and 40 people left a message for a loved one on our memory tree. Thank you for visiting and making this event so special
#JQChristmas #keyhillcemetery

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).
