CEMETERY TOURS UPDATE



For those of you lucky enough to have attended one of Gregor Campbell's cemetery tours during the Festival a few weeks ago, Gregor has kindly supplied these links to his fascinating blog, which provide further insight into the graves and stories that featured on the tours.


And for everyone else, watch out for the video tours of both the Southern and Northern Cemeteries that Gregor has recently recorded, and which will be published in a few weeks on this website.
