Death Cafe @ Asylum (Family friendly)

  • Asylum - Caroline Gardens Chapel Asylum Road London, SE15 2LW United Kingdom (map)

Join hosts Laura-Jane Smith, Louise Winter, Anna Lyons and David Blackwell at Asylum London, to discuss all matters of death, dying, life and living over tea and cake in beautiful surroundings.

Caroline Gardens Chapel, also known as Asylum, in Peckham, forms the heart of London’s largest complex of almshouses originally known as the Licensed Victuallers’ Benevolent Institution Asylum, a sanctuary for retired pub landlords (or ‘decayed members of the trade’ as they were known at the time).  Gutted by an incendiary bomb during the Second World War, it has been run as an art space since 2010.

This event is open to people of all ages and will be family friendly so please bring children if you wish to. There will be spaces for child-inclusive and adult-only conversations so that everyone feels comfortable. There will also be activities for children (and those who are children at heart). 

Everyone is welcome, but please book a ticket in advance.  

This event is part of Dying Matters Awareness Week, placing the importance of talking about dying, death and bereavement firmly on the national agenda. The 2016 Awareness Week runs from 9-15th May and is themed 'The Big Conversation'.
