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.

Poetry and Songs of the American Civil War

Dr Mike Muncaster was Head of History at Bedford Modern School for many years and after taking early retirement is now an independent Lecturer.

The American Civil War produced more poetry and music than any previous conflict and illustrates powerfully the experiences, hopes and fears of both sides and helps to bring the issues of the war alive.

This event will be an evening of noisy, rousing music in which everyone can join in. Some of the songs will be familiar so please feel free to sing along.

On a more serious level we will look at the background and inspiration which produced this body of work.

The price includes savoury and sweet refreshments plus wine and soft drinks.

Bring the whole family.  Children can come along for free!
