Special Events for 2018


The Trust hosts around 30 public activities each year on the Cemetery’s history and nature. We are fortunate to have a range of keen amateurs and experts who volunteer their time in leading these events supported by volunteers who help organise and ensure they run as smoothly as possible.

If you want to get a good grounding in the Cemetery’s history we recommend attending one of our regular history walks on the 1st Sunday of each month (except January 1st – walk will be on Sunday 8th January).

For most of our events we suggest a minimum donation of £3 to help support the running of the Trust and its activities. Unless otherwise indicated the meeting point for our events is The Gatehouse at the end of Cemetery Avenue, off Ecclesall Road.

As of September 2017 – In order to anticipate large and unmanageable turnouts, some of our events will be ticketed using Ticket Source.
