Death Café – Sounding Out meeting

Monday 26th September, 10am.

The Bonnington Centre Café is playing host to a sounding out meeting, exploring ideas for a new Death Café as a local community resource.

What is a Death Café? (from the Death Café website)

At a Death Café people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death.

Our objective is ‘to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives’.

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

Death Cafes are always offered:

  • On a not for profit basis
  • In an accessible, respectful and confidential space
  • With no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action
  • Alongside refreshing drinks and nourishing food – and cake!

Death Cafés have spread quickly across Europe, North America and Australasia. As of today, we have offered 14675 Death Cafés in 82 countries since September 2011.

Death Cafés already exist in other parts of London, but none are, as yet, south of the river.
