About this Death Cafe

Far from being sombre or macabre occasions, Death Cafes offer an opportunity to explore and share our thoughts about the subject of living and dying in a safely contained friendly and relaxed environment. I have been involved with many aspects of living with death and dying and know that doing so makes living easier. I am grateful to The Old Fire Station for making its cafe available for these events, and you can purchase a drink and a cake/bun if you arrive a few minutes early.
