About this Death Cafe

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

This Death Cafe is being hosted by the wonderful Blakesley Hall Museum in Yardley and Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery.

Blakesley Hall is a  timber-framed house built in 1590 by Richard Smalbroke, a member of one of Birmingham’s leading merchant families. 

More than 400 years later, beautiful Blakesley is still a haven; secluded from the avenues of modern houses that lie beyond its gates. 

The house is furnished using an inventory taken in the 17th century and reflects the lifestyle of a wealthy family of the late Tudor and Stuart period of English history.

Tickets are free and tea, coffee and cake will be provided.
