York's Dead Good Festival 2019

When it comes to conversations about death, it always seems too early until it's too late. As a society, we're not particularly good at talking about these things. York's Dead Good Festival takes place this year from 10th - 19th May, with the aim of encouraging people to be more open about dying, death and bereavement. The festival will encourage people to express themselves in different ways, whilst giving advice and support on a number of practical matters. Join us for events throughout York including performances, informative talks, crafts, discussions and more, many of which are free.

We want the people of York and surrounding areas to buck the trend and take their own lives, their own end of lives and the end of the lives of loved ones into their own hands. It can be uncomfortable, painful and even scary, but it's also important - and can be invigorating doing it together in the open. 

A full programme of events is coming soon!
