York’s first ever Dead Good Festival takes place this year from 14th – 20th May, with the aim of encouraging people to be more open about dying, death and bereavement.
We recognise that, as a society, we’re not particularly good at talking about these things and so 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.
