Ideal Death Show 2015
September 4, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - September 6, 2015 @ 1:00 pm
The Ideal Death Show is a weekend gathering of entrepreneurs, pioneers and progressives from the funeral industry.
At the Ideal Death Show you can talk about bereavement, funeral planning and the more unusual ways that people are choosing to mark their own passing.
We pick the best lecturers to talk about topics like what it feels like to die, what an embalmer does and how to write an obituary.
We invite people who work in ‘funeral world’ to tell us what’s new, what goods and services they’re offering and what they’ve observed in their work.
We host Death Cafés where people can speak honestly about their experiences of bereavement and loss.
We also invite keen bakers to make a funeral cake to take part in our competition. The bakers are asked to explain their motivation behind the cake’s design.
This will be the fifth year we’ve organised an event. Many people feel uncomfortable about the idea, but our weekends always have more laughs than tears.
The Ideal Death Show will take place at St John’s House, The Broadway, Winchester on the weekend of 4-6 September 2015.
There will be a reception on the Friday, an exhibition and lectures on the Saturday and the unique Good Funeral Awards Gala Dinner on the Saturday night.
