Life, Death (and the Rest) is our annual four-day event of talks, walks, theatre and film that supports a growing social movement talking about death, and how we remember our loved ones.

There will be the opportunity to come to a Death Cafe where people drink tea, eat cake and discuss death. Join in with one of our fascinating Morbid Curiosity tours, or learn about Memorial Tattoos with Dr John Troyer. Come and listen to Carla Valentine talk about her book “Past Mortems” or join us in the Anglican Chapel to celebrate your own mortality with The Death Show.
