  • Creating Conversations holds a Death Cafe at this venue, every 3rd Wednesday of the Month.

    Every event is FREE.

    Come and talk about death and anything connected with it and drink tea, coffee and eat cake in a friendly and accepting atmosphere. Everyone is welcome!

    The aim of a Death Cafe is to provide a forum where people can speak to each other about death as a natural part of life.

    Places are limited both due to the environment capacity but also so everyone who wishes to can join in the conversation.

    So do let us know if you need to cancel so someone else can take your place.

    However there is no need to print tickets.

    The first part of the evening the Cafe is still open to the public, but then closes to the public at 6.30pm and the conversation continues in a quieter environment.

    Please arrive on time so we can start the conversation together.
  • Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group and not a grief support or counselling session. To make it a safe and welcoming space we ask everyone to respect the differences in people’s experience, thoughts or beliefs and to keep personal stories confidential.

    Death Cafes operate with no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action.

    If you have been recently bereaved our Bereavement Cafe might be more appropriate.

  • Creating Conversations in Croydon, is a community collaborative project in partnership with St Christophers, Age UK Croydon and Cruse Croydon, with the aim to help people of all ages talk more openly about death and dying and to create their end of life plans.

    It  has been funded by Croydon Clinical Commissioning group to support the people of Croydon to begin the process of change.

    Bringing ‘Dying Matters’ out from the medical world back into our communities, and accepted as a  part of our life cycle.

    This proactive project aims to inform and encourage people in their end of life wishes and choices including where they may wish to die, understanding the legal medical directives, reflect on their funeral wishes but above all to share their wishes with family and friends. Research has shown this gives all involved, peace of mind, reducing family conflicts.
