March looks like it’s going to be a busy month in the cemetery world!
Here’s what death and burial related events are coming up:
Ceremonial Way Tour of Arnos Vale Cemetery
Cemeteries aren’t always the most accessible of places. Now I know not everyone has to go scrambling about in the bushes for lost headstones like I do, but they still often feature steep paths and muddy conditions. So I think this tour of Arnos Vale which is designed to be wheelchair and walking stick friendly is fantastic! It’s happening on Saturday 14th March at 1.30pm. All the information is here. As usual Arnos Vale has a pretty full events calendar, so check out the full list of happenings here!
Mother’s Day Special at The Coffin Works
Is your mum a museum lover or a fan of funerals? Sunday 15th March might be the perfect time to take her to Newman Brothers Coffin Works with mum’s going FREE! Check it out.
Keep the Home Fires Burning at Highgate
Thursday 19th March at 7.30pm (doors open at 7). An evening of music to celebrate the power of songs to unite communities during WWI. To book and for more details click this link. For more events at Highgate check here.
