Death Café

Scroll to explore

As part of York’s annual Dead Good Festival which takes place each year alongside the national Dying Matters Awareness week, York Minster will be hosting a Death Café on Monday 9 May.

All are welcome to join for tea, cake and a conversation about death. The aim of the Death Café movement is to increase awareness of death in order to help people make the most of their finite lives.

The Death Café is open to everyone whatever their knowledge, interest or belief and offers an open, respectful, confidential and non-hierarchical space for a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives, advertising or themes.


Please note, this is not a grief support or counselling session.

This is a free event, to book your place please email yorkdeathcafe@gmail.com.
