Sylvia Plath Gravesite Schedule
To preserve the dignity of the gravesite, and of the surrounding graves, we are asking visitors to the festival to sign up to a day and time to visit Sylvia’s grave. There will be 9 hour-long slots from 10am - 7pm for Friday 21st, Saturday 22nd, and Sunday 23rd October. Each slot will allow a maximum of 10 people to visit the graveyard at any given time, and we ask that no more than 5 people visit Sylvia’s grave at once. Please be kind and respectful of the setting, and of each other. There is a bench near the entrance to wait. Volunteers will be at the graveyard to direct and advise visitors. If you would like to leave poems, flowers or objects in memory of Sylvia, there will be a memorial basket in the Contemplation Space at Heptonstall Museum. Please do not leave anything at the gravesite. If you have any queries about this, please contact us at email@example.com.
