About this Death Cafe
Death Cafe Taunton is an opportunity to discuss all aspects of death in a relaxed atmosphere, with hot drinks and cake.
This meeting of Death Cafe Taunton will be part of a larger event, Taunton Death Fair. The fair will take place from 2-5 PM with the Death Cafe to take place at a time TBC during. Along with the death cafe, attendees can browse stalls, take part in workshops, and view demonstrations! It's a great way to find out more information and spark discussion in a friendly atmosphere -- everything you wanted to know about death but were afraid to ask! As part of Dying Matters Awareness Week.
What is Death Cafe? It’s a global movement to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives. There is no agenda or judgement. It is a discussion group rather than grief support or therapy.
Anyone can can come talk about any aspect of death and dying, from our own experiences with death to funeral plans.
At Death Cafe Taunton at the Creative Innovation Centre, you will find a safe and respectful setting to discuss death, celebrate life, and of course, enjoy a hot drink and delicious cake.
Admission is free, but there will be refreshments for sale during the cafe. Save your place at the table as spaces are limited!
About Nicole Stanfield Caile
When my father died a few years ago without making any plans, he created a difficult and upsetting situation for his family. I realised then the importance of planning for our deaths, and living our lives to the fullest. The first step is to shake the stigma and talk about death--with our friends, our families, our loved ones, and even complete strangers.
