Death Cafe for Dying Matters Week

The Coffin Works, Fleet Street, BIRMINGHAM, West Midlands, B3 1JP
Death Cafe for Dying Matters Week

About

Cake or death? Get a taste of both at a free Death Cafe this Dying Matters Week.

This year, Museums at Night falls during Dying Matters Week, so the Coffin Works has taken the opportunity to open late and talk death.

It kicks off with a FREE Death Café, facilitated by Laura Joyce, the museum's writer in residence. In the Death Cafe, there are no hierarchies. Everyone meets simply as people who are going to die. This is an agenda-free discussion, with the topics determined by attendees. There will be tea and cake and an optional tombstone biscuit decorating activity.

Booking is essential, as places are limited. Donations for refreshments would be gratefully received.

An evening tour of the museum will follow - details on the website.
