About this Death Cafe

When you ask to book a place, please tell Josefine a little about yourself. 

The upstairs room at Cafe Rouge is beautiful, but the acoustics are less so. For this reason we only use three tables of 8 - 10 people each. We have room for up to 30 participants only.

The format of the evening is in two parts. We start with a conversation around each table followed by a break. The second half varies. It could start with a short conversation in pairs before returning again to a conversation around the table and/or a plenary at the end.

Please order and pay for your food or drink on arrival, giving your name and table number in the Death Cafe upstairs. You could jump the queue by arriving before 6.30pm!

We hope for everyone to be settled by 6.45pm.
