festival of death and dying 2019

Our aim


We have a vision of a death-friendly society in which death is shared and understood and the lives of those who have died are celebrated. By building a model of a free  community led annual celebration of death and dying here in Somerset we hope the idea will spread across the country.

Who are we?


We are a group of people from the area with a passion to create a death friendly society. We are not 'experts' just individuals who have come together to make this happen.

Plans for 2019


These are underway! We are hoping for another free event, this time across the neighbouring towns of Wells and Glastonbury over the weekend of Friday 2nd, Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th November.

And we can all do something about 

we all share
