About this Death Cafe


Located in a cosy village hall, with free adjacent parking, close to Newbury town.


It's a privilege to offer a safe, informal space in which to talk about death and dying; a subject many of us find awkward and difficult. Come and join us to share experiences, listen and learn while enjoying cake and tea.


Places are limited to 12 spaces to help encourage informality and conversation. Booking essential.

About Tony Hersh and Neeta Madahar

Tony Hersh has a science and medical background including a PhD. He is very interested in how people deal with the thoughts and fears of their own death. He has been attending the death cafe in Bristol and has found it a fascinating and supportive environment where all aspects about death, dying and the afterlife can be openly discussed. Tony lives near Newbury and is supporting a new death cafe for people living in and around Newbury.


Neeta Madahar is a visual artist, and yoga and meditation teacher and trained as a Soul Midwife last Autumn. The interconnectedness of life and death and how to lead a happy, fulfilling life underpin her various roles. Vigiling at her dying mother-in-law's bedside in May 2018 was a profound experience, inspiring Neeta to offer Death Cafe events in her community.
