Excursions every 15 minutes, as part of the Plymouth History Festival
Located on Plymouth’s historic Hoe, in the shadow of The Citadel, lies the Old Jewish Cemetery. Contained within high stone walls it has always remained hidden from public view. The only clue to its existence is an insignificant door. With the aid of funding from Vital Sparks and Drakes Foundation, an audio trail has been created, bringing to life the lives of those buried.
Sensible footwear required.
MP3s and head phones available on the day or bring your own head phones and/or your own smart phone.
Donations welcome / Booking essential / firstname.lastname@example.org / 07753267616 / www.plymouthsynagogue.com
