Sophie Marsden wrote these two articles published online here about her experience of a Death Cafe hosted by Josefine Speyer at her house in London, specifically for it to be filmed for Sophie's student project.
The event took place in March 2013.
Avery well written piece about our January Death Cafe meeting in Swindon.
Sarah Singleton the features writer joined the meeting and afterwards wrote in a style that was interesting and engaging - not just a report. She wrote about her impression of events and this was refreshing and positive.

Lovely article (in German) in our local newspaper, Oberösterreichische Nachrichten, in Upper Austria last weekend. The journalist Roswitha Fitzinger initially just wanted to observe, but ended up becoming an enthusiastic participant. Unlike other, very superficial articles in small local papers, this one goes into detail about the background of the Death Cafe model, crediting Jon Underwood appropriately, and vividly describes the atmosphere.
Many thanks to Roswitha Fitzinger for this article, and also to Norbert Trawöger from Kepler Salon for his support for the Linz Death Cafe - Mit dem Tod bei Kaffee und Kuchen.

"Dying to Talk
There's only one thing in life that's certain: death.
Many people believe that talking about death helps us make more out of life.
Thousands of Death Cafés have popped up in countries across the globe, challenging people to open up about the deceased and their own thoughts and fears about dying. Cafes are often over subscribed with organisers having to turn away individuals from sell out events.

The calls, emails and texts barraged us after Erin Negley's article about our first Death Cafe in January. We quickly realized the number of people who wanted to attend exceeded our venue and table facilitators - so we immediately rescueduled a second one the week following.
Erin's piece was a section lead article. Subsequently, several television stations contacted us for interviews.
And LNP - Always Lancster's editorial two day's later ("We shouldn't wait until death is near to talk about it) build huge numbers of callers for the second one. Here's the link to the editorial: http://lancasteronline.com/opinion/editorials/we-shouldn-t-wait-until-death-is-near-to-talk/article_e40ba1fa-dd0d-11e6-be26-cbfda1557db4.html
Death Cafes are a wonderful and necessary concept.

Great article, thanks again to Lucy Berry the author. Lucy has covered many of my events. Thanks to all that attended. I was surprised to have 16 attendees. Some were able to stay longer than others. There was no lack of conversation which varied from personal experiences to funeral costs and alternatives. Our cafe was held at the West End Grill in Huntsville. Those that wanted ate dinner or had drinks. The food was good and reasonably priced. We were allowed to use the restaurant's private room at no cost due to those that ordered refereshments. Over all a great even with lots of participation.
