Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park offers everyone a breathing space in the heart of East London. This woodland cemetery is a unique place of transformation: a people's cemetery, a place for remembrance, a sanctuary for humans as well as nature, a place for festivals, field studies and forest schools. Always changing with the seasons, it is rooted in the history of the East End, a place of rich heritage that is full of possibilities and freedom for all.
We are delighted to welcome Nelson Brooks, Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park Poet in Resident 2018.
Each month, Nelson will release a new poem inspired by the Cemetery Park. January's poem, titled New Beginnings is available via the pic to the left.
February's theme will be 'Coming alive - first bulbs', keep an eye out!
Big thanks to the LBTH & especially Cllr. Khales for his generous donation to us. Thanks to fellow participant charities for helping to raise £10,725 to go towards our work @APASENTH @bbpi100 @soulfc. We feel very proud and honoured to be one of Cllr. Khales chosen charities and to have raised so much.
We are excited to share our new self-guided Heritage trail which was launched at London Open House weekend. The trail brings to life the stories of people buried here and the architecture of the memorials which commemorate them.
