Public Meeting to gather supporters for a new ‘Friends of’ group for Greyfriars Kirkyard

We want to hear your visionfor the future of Greyfriars Kirkyard.

We are looking for enthusiastic people to join us in setting up a new ‘friends of’ group, created for Greyfriars Kirkyard, to coordinate local community interest and support for this iconic site. 

This free event, facilitated by Edinburgh World Heritage and led by Charlotte Golledge (volunteer and Greyfriars Kirkyard enthusiast), is part of the Making Lasting Impressions: Greyfriars Kirkyard community project, funded by the National Lottery Heritage fund, which aims to involve a wider range of people with this beloved heritage site.

At this event you will hear from Dr Jeff Sanders, Vice President of the Friends of Warriston Cemetery, who will share the experiences of Edinburgh’s first graveyard friends group, and Dr Susan Buckham (Edinburgh World Heritage’s Graveyards Project Manager) who will describe the work of graveyard ‘friends of’ groups across the UK. 

Please join us at this public meeting to lend it your support and find out how you can get involved. 

All are welcome.
