The tour will involve:

  • Looking at the graveyard's historical connections to Nottingham and finding out about some of the colourful characters who are buried there.
  • An exploration of urban wildlife.
  • A tour of the statues in the Arboretum and finding out about their historical links to Nottingham.
  • A sociable refreshment break.

What you need to check before attending the event:

  • Are you studying Psychology with Sociology and/or a Criminology module as part of BA Health and Social Care course? If so, you will need to check your module learning rooms to see if your lectures are still taking place.
  • Are you studying on the BA (Hons) Criminology; BA (Hons) Social Work, BSc (Hons) Psychology; BSc (Hons) Psychology with Sociology; or BSc (Hons) Psychology with Criminology? You will still have scheduled teaching, seminars or you will be on placement. You are very welcome to attend our ACE Week events that do not clash with your scheduled teaching.
