First North Enfield Death Cafe


First North Enfield Death Cafe


The first North Enfield Death Cafe took place on 19th February in the Lancaster Centre. There were 8 participants. All liked the venue, and comments included “excellent but parking is difficult”; “very pleasant, nice and calm and good facilities”; “the low-level lighting was, I thought, essential”; “perfect”.


Comments by participants on their experience of the cafe included: “informal, pleasant, relaxing discussion that helps reduce fear and unfamiliarity with a very important subject”; “it was relaxing and open”; “contributions were unique and therefore thought provoking, [offering] gentle  reassurance”; “a great bonding of strangers with the same interest”; “I would recommend it to anyone who shows curiosity”; “really engaging experience and full of surprises – how cheerful and good-humoured ”; “open, honest sharing of thoughts and experiences of death – taboo subject!”


I want to thank all participants for making this first North Enfield Death Cafe such a success. Thank you especially for the unique and personal contributions; for the respect shown for the contributions of others; for sharing tea and cake together whilst talking about death; and for acknowledging that by talking about death, we enhance the life we have left.
