York’s Dead Good Festival

York’s Dead Good Festival

A Festival for the Living 14th-20th May 2018

We recognise that, as a society, we’re not particularly good at talking about dying, death and bereavement. This festival will help people express themselves in different ways, whilst giving advice and support on a number of practical matters. Our festival is part of a network of events across the UK for Dying Matters Awareness Week.

Please note, events are free to attend unless stated. For further information please visit www.stleonardshospice.org.uk or download the PDF document below.
