In March this year we put call out for contributors to the festival - the response has been incredibly exciting. Soul midwives, green funeral directors, palliative care nurses, artists, poets and musicians have put forward amazing offers to do workshops, talks and performances on the themes of end of life planning, care of the body, funerals, the after life, and celebrating the dead. We have planned an end of life trade fair, a 'Question Time' style panel, shrine making for families and an altar cloth to be made in a day out of 'dead' clothing for starters and there is much much more!
Not being afraid to go to the dark places we have a death by suicide space planned for those affected and a hot widows club. We aim to bring kindness, humour, creaativity and compassion in all our events. These unique events will be hosted by 6 venues across GLASTONBURY, WELLS AND SHEPTON MALLET. There may be more.!
