Death Cafe is a group facilitated discussion of death, with no agenda, objectives or themes. The purpose is to increase awareness of death and dying to help people make the most of their (FINITE) lives.

It’s not as scary as you might think. It’s not morbid or depressing, it’s a safe and welcoming space to reflect on death and therefore life while enjoying cake and a cuppa! Join me to discuss, listen, explore and consider what life and death mean to you.
