Sessions & Events

 
The Beautiful Burial Ground Project aims to inspire, engage and support interest groups, communities and individuals to learn about, research and survey the biodiversity and heritage of their local burial grounds.  We aim to do this by offering a range of training sessions and events.
Celebrating Birmingham’s Burial Grounds Project focusses on five burial grounds in Birmingham, exploring their social history and architectural heritage by recording the details of the monuments onto a bespoke digital map.  Please look out for the monument recording sessions and other events connected to the project. Find out more from the project page.

 

All sessions are free of charge, anyone is welcome to book on.
