About this Death Cafe

At a Death Café people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, enjoy café-type drinks and discuss death. 

Our objective is 'to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.

A Death Café is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session. There are no ''experts'' at a Death Café, therefore no guest speakers etc. 

Our Death Cafés are always offered: 
- On a not for profit basis 
- In an accessible, respectful and confidential space 
- With no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action 
- Alongside refreshing drinks and nourishing food – and cake! 


''Comfortable, relaxed, friendly, well worth it''
''Open & welcoming, great atmosphere''
''Really interesting & positive experience''
''Innovative, supportive, expansive''
''Really well worthwhile''
