A cemetery may not be the first place one would expect to find cultural inspiration, but cemeteries are packed with art in the form of sculptured monuments, stained glass in chapel windows and verse on stones. And the ambience has inspired works in all art forms. Come along for a cultural view of the Newtwon Road Cemetery.

Speaker
