What is a Death Café?

Death Café Bristol is part of a global movement of Death Cafés.  At Death Café we come together to talk about death in a relaxed, safe, social, cafe environment (thus they have a very different feeling to a formal workshop).

Our objective is “To increase awareness of the reality of death, so we can enjoy feeling more fully alive“.

The conversations are always new and fresh. Each time we meet the changing mix of people ensures that you can come to any number of events and be guaranteed a vibrantly new and fresh experience each time.

Whether you’re coming for the first time or a seasoned patron, there’s always something to talk about, good company, interesting conversation and excellent tea and cake! Hope to see you there!

Cox & Baloney is a terrific venue and have even devised a special Death Café menu for us, at a discounted price, with carefully selected teas and cakes to help the conversation flow. If you have any particular dietary requirements, please do content Emma or the venue in advance.


Death Cafe Bristol starts promptly at the advertised time, and we always start with a minute’s silence followed by a brief welcome. Please arrive and order any food and drinks before then; we will be open from half an hour before the start time. There will be a half-way break if you wish to reorder as well.

Any further questions please email me at emma@notbeingmorbid.com or call me on 07720442239

Admission: By donation – whatever you can afford is very welcome

Parking: Free in the street outside or in adjacent side roads

Please note: A Death Cafe is not a bereavement or grief counselling group. This is especially so for people who have experienced a recent and/or traumatic loss or death. This sustains Death Cafes as comfortable, relaxed and safe exploratory spaces. Death Cafe is also not affiliated with any particular religion or belief system, and everyone is welcome, and will be respected regardless of what they do or don’t believe.
