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.

Sweet Memories (but don’t get me started on Wagon Wheels!)

Whenever Kevin Varty gives one of  his popular talks he always captivates and entertains the audience,  so we can definitely expect nothing less from this nostalgic look at sweets from the past – from the first solid chocolate bar produced in the 1800’s to the iconic sweets of the 1980’s, some of which are still popular today.  If you  still remember those sweets that you craved for as a child,  why not come along and take a trip down memory lane?

Refreshments will be available after the talk.  Although these are free, a small contribution to the Friends is always welcome.

The talk is free to Friends.
