We are delighted to announce that Leeds Bereavement Forum will be holding further Death Cafés in 2020. Working in partnership with Leeds Libraries, we will be arranging a number of Death Cafés at different community locations across the city. 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.
