This Weekend: 3rd & 4th August 2013

Arnos Vale Cemetery, Bath Road, Bristol, BS4 3EW 

The lovely people from the REACT Future Cemetery Project are looking for volunteers to help us assess the functionality and content of their exciting new tour app for Arnos Vale Cemetery. The app takes you on a tour of some of the lesser known places in this Grade II listed cemetery giving you an insight into the history and lives of some of the people who've lived and worked there.
