About this Death Cafe

Shhhhhhh we’re talking about death

Death is a subject that no one really wants to discuss, it’s the elephant in the corner of the room. But, it will happen to all of us eventually so we think it’s a good idea to talk about it while we still can.

That’s exactly what we’re doing at St Joseph’s Hospice on Wednesday 10th May during Dying Matters Week. We’re holding our 5th Death Café, where death and dying will be discussed in an informal setting, while drinking tea and eating cake.


So what exactly is a Death Café? It’s essentially afternoon tea with a difference. Come along and you’ll find delicious cakes on tiered cake stands and freshly brewed tea. The difference lies in the topics of conversation. At a Death Café, you’ll find people want to talk and share their feelings about death, whether it’s their fears, concerns or even hopes and wishes for this great inevitability.


 What will surprise you is the one thing that’s always present at a Death Café, laughter. Even in the face of death we can remain hopeful and enjoy all that life has to offer us.


Come and join us for interesting conversation, tea and cake at 2pm, Wednesday 10th May.
