About this Death Cafe

This Death Café will take place in the backroom of Potters House Cafe.  It will provide an opportunity for individuals of any background, religion, culture or belief to meet together in a non-judgemental environment to discuss death and dying - one of our biggest conversational taboos. 

The much feared subject of death and dying is never easy to discuss, but why not take the opportunity to come, share, learn and discuss in a safe, friendly and relaxed environment.

The meeting will be informal, insightful and far from morbid! Everyone is welcome to bring their thoughts, friends and family. Wheelchair accessible.  

Intrigued?  Come along.... remember, talking about death won’t make it happen!
