Death Cafe Comes To Doncaster

This Saturday at 1.30pm in Cast’s nook bar, strangers will gather, talk about death and dying, eat cake and drink tea.

Doncaster’s first ever Death Cafe is completely free and will be led by Rachel Horne. Aside from being Doncopolitan co-founder and co-editor, Rachel has worked in Palliative Care as a Creative Arts Therapist for the last four years.

As an experience, it is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session. Run on a not-for-profit basis, it aims to be an accessible, respectful and confidential space with no intention of leading people to any conclusion.


The Death Cafe will be followed by poetry readings from Ian Parks and Paul Dyson, along with music from Mick Jenkinson. Local shamanic practitioner Suzanne Wass will be there during the Death Cafe to share her knowledge on ancient rituals and artefacts from around the world.

The Death Cafe is in support of the play Am I Dead Yet? which will come to Cast on Wednesday 19th October.
