Online Event: The Secret Pet Cemetery of Hyde Park
Wednesday 28th Oct 2020
5:30pm - 6:30pm
We're opening this hidden space up to virtual visitors for free!
Our walking tours of the Pet Cemetery sell out immediately, but you can join us for a one-of-a-kind experience from the comfort of your home.
Join us online for an exploration of The Pet Cemetery of Hyde Park, the first pet cemetery of Britain. You will uncover the unusual history of this chilling space with Laura McMahon, Community Programme Officer for The Royal Parks, Jonathan Grun, tour guide of our Pet Cemetery and Eric Tourigny, lecturer at University of Newcastle who is currently researching Britain's pet cemeteries.
We will look inside the cemetery, learn how such a unique place came about, and hear the sweet and sometimes quirky stories of the animals who are interred there.
