From 2.00-9.30 pm, the Cemetery will be open as one of Berkhamsted’s many special places to visit on Heritage Open Days.
There will be tours, teas, living history (including a reappearance by Mr Ghost, the grave-digger) a horse-drawn hearse, workshops and much more. Please come and tell us what you think of our plans.
The finale of Seeing the Light will consist of a special evening lantern procession, featuring the original funeral bier accompanied by musicians and choirs, from St Peter’s Church to the Cemetery, where we hope to illuminate the graveyard with as many lanterns and lights as possible. If you could help organise, promote or deliver the event, please do get in contact.
