HERITAGE OPEN DAYS
The Friends of Jesmond Old Cemetery are hosting two - yes, two!! - tours of Jesmond Old Cemetery as part of our contribution to the annual success that is the Heritage Open Days initiative in Tyne & Wear.
Our tours also coincide with National Cemeteries Week, which runs from the 9th - 17th September, and is being promoted by the National Federation of Cemetery Friends as an opportunity to explain to the general public just what Cemetery Friends do.....so come along and find out what we do!!
Our first tour is on Friday 8th September at 14.00 - 16.30 with our second tour taking place on Saturday 9th September at 10.00 - 12.30.
Pre-booking is required but we have increased the numbers of visitors we can accommodate to 40 on each tour..... that's a lot of potential guests but we are confident that we can ensure everyone has a great time.
The bookings system commences on 1st August 2017 @ 09:00.
Please pre-book here: HODSTW@newcastle.gov.uk
Meet us at the Jesmond Road entrance entrance to the Cemetery, where we will have refreshments available. No charge but all donations gratefully received.
Come dressed for British summer....... and wear suitable footwear. Unfortunately, due to the design and nature of Jesmond Old Cemetery, disabled access is very limited.
