Join us for another Death Café, this time virtually, where people of all ages and backgrounds can gather to talk about death. 

The aim of a Death Café is to break down the taboos around discussing death, in order to help people make the most of their lives. 

Founder Jon Underwood, who held the UK's first café in his home in London, explained: "When people sit down to talk about death, the pretence kind of falls away, and people talk very openly and authentically. They say things in front of strangers which are really profound and beautiful. And for English people to do that, with our traditional stiff upper lip, is very rare."

These sessions are facilitated by volunteers, with the conversation led by its participants – meaning there is no agenda, and there are no objectives or foregone conclusions. It is a discussion group, rather than a grief or counselling session. Each participant is free to steer the discussion where it feels natural to go.

This session will be taking place virtually over Zoom. Please register via Eventbrite and you will be sent an email with joining details two days before the event.


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Penny on pjmerrett@talktalk.net.
