At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. It is simply an opportunity to talk about death in a safe and comfortable environment with no agenda, objectives or themes. We keep our groups small so it is easy to share stories, thoughts or worries or simply just listen.
Maureen, who previously attended one of our Death Cafés says: "It was a great opportunity to talk about a subject that preoccupies us all. Give it a go; you might be pleasantly surprised!"
