At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. The objective is ‘to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives’.
A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session.
Death Cafes are always offered:
– On a not for profit basis
– In an accessible, respectful and confidential space
– With no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action
– Alongside refreshing drinks and nourishing food – and cake!
– See more at: deathcafe.com
Donations accepted to cover the cost of refreshments.
Death Cafes are not for the recently bereaved, and are inappropriate for children. Bereavement groups can be found at local Hospice companies.

We want this event to be as awesome as we can possibly make it; and we knew we couldn’t do it 100% with the time and circumstances this fall and winter.
