News: Death Cafe

Lively conversation about a subject we shouldn’t be quiet about - Tuesday 27 November 7-9pm at The Tradesman’s Entrance Café, 13 Scarsdale Place, Buxton

At a Death Cafe people, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. The objective is to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives. 

A Death Cafe is a small group discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes.  It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session.

Free event +18 for more information and to book your place go to deathcafe.com
