In honour of London Month of the Dead 2015, Miss Louise de Winter will be hosting a death cafe at Abney Park Cemetery.
With the tube soon to run 24 hours a day London will truly be a city that never sleeps, but for generations of Londoners who went before us it is a place of eternal rest.
Throughout October 2015 and concluding on All Souls Day, we will be hosting The London Month of the Dead, investigating the capital’s relationship with its deceased residents. Events will include a tour of Hyde Park’s pet cemetery, a private view of the Museum of London’s bone archive, taxidermy workshops and a series of weekend death salons with talks on subjects ranging from public dissection and body snatching to reincarnation and funereal folklore. Each salon will feature a pair of speakers, authorities in fields such as osteology, forensic pathology and the paranormal, who will offer their own perspectives and insights on mortality in the city.
Death Cafe is a free event devoted to discussing all aspects of mortality over light refreshments.
