About this Death Cafe

We all share the knowledge that the one thing we can be certain of is that one day we shall die: in a Death Cafe, supported by experienced facilitators we offer a safe place for people of all ages and beliefs (or none) to come together and share open, relaxed conversations around death and dying over tea and cake.

Far from being awkward or morbid, these discussions are informative, open, friendly and supportive.There can even be humour, as people begin to make connections, ask questions and find relief in talking openly with others who share similar thoughts, fears or experiences.
