LGBT Death Café

Saturday 30th September 2–4pm facilitated by Nick & Janice.

At a Death Cafe people drink tea, eat cake and discuss death. The aim is to increase awareness of death to help people make the most of their (finite) lives.

Death Cafe is not a bereavement support or grief counselling setting. Death Cafes aren’t an opportunity to give people information about death and dying regardless of how good or important it is. Rather we create time to discuss death without expectations.

You don’t have to book a place…just turn up…but if ‘d be nice to know how much cake to bake. Contact Rachel on 01274 727759 and for more information on the death cafes contact Janice on 07954 574767 or visit deathcafe.com.
