About this Death Cafe
The event coincides with and supports the fifth annual Dying Matters Awareness Week (12-18 May 2014), which aims to get as many people as possible thinking, talking and acting on issues relating to the improvement of the end of life experience. The Death Cafe at the Rose Theatre is envisaged as an informal and lively discussion about death and dying matters with no pre-set agenda or theme. Tea and cake will be served.
