The aim of the festival, which is taking place during Dying Matters Awareness Week, is to encourage people to think and talk about death, in an open and creative way.

We are busy finalising arrangements but a number of workshops and events are now confirmed and open for bookings:

Friday 10th May – free workshops taking place throughout the day:

Saturday 11th May – the Dead Good Fair, 12pm – 3.00pm

An afternoon of activities exploring how we think and talk about death. The fair will include:

  • Project Grief – a photography exhibition which tells the stories of people finding comfort, distraction or hope in a creative pursuit after losing someone they love
  • AIDS memorial quilt – a beautiful tribute to some of those who have lost their lives to AIDS
  • Death cafe – join a death cafe and learn more about the death cafe movement
  • Write your own eulogy – with Common Theatre

There will be information stalls and talks taking place all afternoon, on topics including: preparing for a funeral; writing a will; how to talk to children about death; and understanding the Power of Attorney and more.
