About this Death Cafe
Following the success of our previous Virtual Death Cafés held in June, we are pleased to be offering a July session.
All are welcome to join this safe and friendly meeting as long as you are over 18 years old.
This is a free event but you must reserve your place.
Held across the UK, Death Cafés are welcoming, safe and friendly meetings for people, often strangers, to openly discuss something that affects us all. There is no set agenda, topic, or designated expert, other than to share our experience, and to deeply listen.
Our very own Virtual Death Café is hosted by Kally Lloyd-Jones and Jess Richards, Joint Directors of the Byre Theatre.
Both foster an inclusive, nurturing and confidential space where people can share openly on this subject which is on people’s minds more than ever. In these times, it feels important to be connected to each other, and able to share our fears and concerns. It is not a support group, or grief counselling, but a safe space to have a conversation in a comfortable environment with open hearts, open minds, and respect for all.
Traditionally, Death Cafés take place in physical spaces and offer refreshments and cake, but since Covid-19, many have moved online – so we encourage you to bring a cup of tea or coffee and a snack to the meeting.
The meeting will take place via Microsoft Teams and you will be sent a link to a secure site on the day before we meet.
Please note – you will need to be connected to the internet with a device that has a video camera and microphone.
