Abney Park Closure on 29 August

On 29 August Abney Park Cemetery will be closed to the public for the day. The reason for this is so we can accommodate a film shoot that will be using large sections of the park and the chapel. To maintain clear health and safety regulations it is necessary to close the park. There will be some set dressing, in preparation for the shoot on 27 and 28 August, but public access will still be available.

In compensation for closing the park, the production will be making a substantial donation to one of Abney's important projects 'Abney Unearthed'.

Thank you for your patience and understanding and if anyone has any queries about the closure please contact: Hackney Film Office on 0208 356 3541 or email rebecca.staffolani@hackney.gov.uk.
