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.

New Views of Old Bedford

The story of Bedford’s Panacea Society is quite well-known nowadays, but this talk and film highlights some of the more recent discoveries about the members’ relationship with the town. To mark the centenary of the Society, it will include fascinating cine-film and photos of Bedford from the 1930s, which have never been shown before. This is a “must” for anyone interested in Bedford’s years gone by.

 

Refreshments will be available for a small charge.
