Frequently Asked Questions:

What is a Death Cafe?
A Death Cafe is a group-directed discussion about death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session.

Ok, so what happens at a Death Cafe?
At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat, drink and discuss death- it's as simple as that!

What kind of things will be discussed?
I don't know! The beauty of Death Cafe is that there is no agenda so the things discussed are whatever the people around the table want them to be. Maybe you want to plan your own funeral but don't know where to start, maybe you reckon people turn into animals after are welcome to talk about whatever you want in relation to death and dying- as long as you remain respectful of the views of others.
