Tea, Cake, and Death: Death Cafe Taunton to meet on 16 March

Following a successful and well-attended January meeting of Death Cafe Taunton, organisers are planning another, to be held on Saturday, 16 March, 2019, at the Creative Innovation Centre, Taunton, from 2 to 4 pm.
Death Cafe Taunton is an opportunity for individuals to come together and discuss all aspects of death, in a relaxed and respectful setting. Adults of any age and experience are invited to attend, to enjoy refreshments and talk about death, dying, and beyond.

Wallace Stuart Funeral Directors of Bridgwater will again be in attendance, facilitating discussion and being on hand for advice or to answer questions. Other legal, religious, funerary, and medical professionals will also be on hand.

Nicole Stanfield Caile, organiser of Death Cafe Taunton, said this about the event: “Every time we hold a death cafe, I see more and more people who just want to talk. It’s so refreshing to see that for many people, the time to break the taboo about talking about death is now. Far from being morbid, chatting about and planning for death, in a relaxed atmosphere with tea and cake, is a great way to live your best life.”

Death Cafe is a global movement, with the aim of increasing awareness of death and to help people make the most of their lives. It was started by Jon Underwood in the UK in 2011, based on the work of Swiss sociologist Bernard Crettaz. It exists today as a not-for-profit social franchise, with death cafes popping up all the time, all over the world.
