Death Cafe

At a Death Café, people drink tea, eat cake and discuss death. It’s not morbid, weird or full of strange men wearing black eyeliner. It’s about paying attention to our mortality and sharing some hints and tips on making the most of our (finite) lives.

There will be no slideshows, no guest speakers, and no set agenda. Everyone is welcome to share their thoughts and experiences, in a straightforward and open discussion about death.

Death Cafés are becoming really popular. Here’s a recent Guardian article about what to expect.

Please note; the Death Café is not a support or counselling session. If you’re looking for bereavement support please contact us – we should be able to put you in touch with the right person.

Event details:

  • Wednesday 30th January, from 6pm to 8pm.
  • Tea, cake and refreshments provided (although you’re welcome to bring a cake if you wish)
  • Everything is offered completely free of charge.

If you’d like to come, please get in touch using the form below, saying how many people you want to bring, so we know how many cakes to bake. Thanks!

    Thank you. I was very impressed when Angela Powell( Marie Curie)brought my husband (Alzheimers sufferer) and myself to visit you recently. We were shown great kindness and understanding and it was so appreciated. I really hope my husband may enjoy respite some time. I don’t think we could manage your forthcoming event but thank you for the kind invitation.
