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.

The Askew Sisters at Hey Ho! Folk

Hey Ho Folk presents the Askew Sisters.

Emily and Hazel Askew have become known as two of the foremost performers and interpreters of English folk music.

Their live performances brim with the depth and connection not only of two sisters, but also of two musicians who have been immersed in folk music all their lives.

Together, they rework and reinterpret songs and balladry, creating breath-taking arrangements, which allow words that are hundreds of years old to resonate profoundly with contemporary audiences.

Alongside this, both women are also skilled multi-instrumentalists and expert players of dance music, using fiddles, melodeons, concertina and cello in their innate drive to bring old dance music to life.

Support from Marisa, Jack & Davy.

Doors open at 7.30pm. Music will start at 8pm.

Pre-booking only. Tickets are £12 + booking fee from Eventbrite click here

There is a licence for the event and alcoholic and soft drinks will be served.

There is loads of free parking after 6pm in the main car park along Foster Hill Road by Robinson Pool and Bedford Park. The footpath to the chapel begins at the gothic gatehouse and archway. Someone will be there to show you the way. It’s a short minute walk, but disabled parking is available as you are allowed to drive through the cemetery. Just drive under the arch and follow the road around to the chapel. Again, someone will be at the gates to direct you, so you won’t get lost! The main gates will close at 4.30 pm
