About this Death Cafe

Poppy, Tonie and Hilary are glad to welcome you to Mushkil Aasaan for this Death Cafe. This will be an inclusive, informal and friendly opportunity to gather together to eat cake, drink tea and talk about death.

It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session. This opportunity is for adults and not children.

You don't have to book, you can just show up, but if you'd like to register your interest in advance, please do sign up here.


We'll see you there!

Mushkil Aasaan is a short walk from Tooting Broadway or Tooting Bec underground stations (Northern line) and close to bus stops for the 155, 355 and 219 bus routes.

Mushkil Aasaan is fully accessible and has a lift facility to the upper floor, which houses the charity’s administrative sector.
