At our Settle Soup in September 2015, Eliza pitched about the idea of starting a Death Café. You can see the video of her pitch below..
Eliza didn’t win on the day (she did say she didn’t want the money!) but several people approached her offering to help out and get a Death Café started. They have now had two gatherings at Settle Quaker Meeting House which have been very well attended.
The next session of Settle’s Death Café will run from 10am to 12 noon on Saturday 12th March 2016 at the Quaker Meeting Rooms in Settle. You are welcome to stay for as long or as little time as you wish. We are running this Death Café as a safe and welcoming place where anybody and everybody is invited to come and talk about death.
At a Death Café people, often strangers, gather, just like any other café, …. Except they discuss death. Each Death Café is run on a not for profit basis (we ask for a donation of £1 per person to cover costs), in an accessible, respectful and confidential space and with no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action – alongside refreshing drinks – and cake!
