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.

Transports of Delight – to the Balkans and beyond in a very surprising way

Ian Jack is a geophysicist and seismologist who has explored for oil and gas all over the world since the 1960s.  Exploration in remote places sometimes requires trying something completely different and always needs a positive attitude and a sense of humour.

This talk is not about trains or ‘great railway journeys’ or any travelogues of that type.  It will be entertaining and will contain surprises.  It will take you to some places which are no longer accessible.


Tea and delicious home made cake will be available for a small charge.


Pay on the door.

(£2.00  event cost for Friends of Bedford Cemetery.)
