Foster Hill Road Cemetery Event Details

The Friends of Foster Hill Road Cemetery host a number of themed talks during the year, which are open to the public and always prove very popular.  The Cemetery records are available at the Chapel during the Heritage Weekend in September and an annual carol concert is held near Christmas.  Other events are held to mark special occasions.

Members of the Friends lead several guided walks during the summer months. Each walk is themed and covers topics such as the Cemetery’s spectacular graves, its history, its wildlife, tales of those buried there and more.  Walks are also included during the Heritage weekend.  The walks last approximately 1.5 hours and the pace is gentle.  However, the cemetery grounds are uneven so a pair of stout walking shoes is recommended.

We are also happy to arrange bespoke walks for interested groups, please contact us for details.

The times and dates of our events vary, so please see our events calendar for more details.

Cinder Well at Hey Ho! Folk

Cinder Well is the haunting folk project of singer and multi-instrumentalist, Amelia Baker from the USA.

This is the first night at the new venue for Hey Ho! Folk: the Cemetery Chapel at Foster Hill Road. It’s a fascinating and beautiful building and we are very lucky to be able to use it to hold our intimate folk nights.

Amelia’s songs are nostalgic and moving, centered around memory, loss, place, and longing. While heavily influenced by traditional American and Irish music and song, Cinder Well is deeply personal and original. Amelia Baker’s mourning vocals are framed with resonator guitar, shruti box, and strings, and her lyrics and cathartic melodies wrap listeners in a surrealist world just adjacent to our own.

Born out of a collective love of 1970’s folk-rock, traditional ballads, and dance music of America, Ireland, and Scandinavia, Cinder Well’s sound is at once provoking and nostalgic.

Pre-booking only.  Tickets are £10 + booking fee from  Eventbrite click here
