More Tea and Hope in 2018!

We are delighted to announce that Leeds Bereavement Forum will be holding further Death Cafés in 2018. Working in partnership with Leeds Libraries, we will be arranging a number of Death Cafés at different community locations across the city starting with the Tiled Hall Café in Leeds on Wednesday 17 January.  In partnership with Yorkshire Mesmac, we have scheduled an LGBT Death Café on Saturday 10 March. Please see below for details of dates, venues and times.

What is a Death Café?

At a Death Café people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. Death Cafés are an international movement dedicated to encouraging discussion about death and dying in a relaxed environment – a welcome opportunity to ask those awkward questions you always wanted to ask.

At the Leeds Libraries’ Death Cafés, library staff will also be offering a vast array of books available to loan relating to death, dying and bereavement and free refreshments will be available.

Wednesday 17 January 2018 | The Tiled Cafe in Leeds Central Library | 11am-12 midday
