Death Over Dinner

May 12 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

£35.00

Ticket price includes all food and drink. Book your tickets here.

You are invited to Death over Dinner. An evening of food, conversation, performances and speakers – taking on the subject of death & dying

Death Over Dinner is an event unlike any other, offering the chance to have the conversations we need to be having, but aren’t. The conversations that really matter, the conversations that can change our lives.

Gather around our banqueting table and enjoy a delicious 5-course feast and a line-up of performances and speakers.

Stirchley Baths will be transformed into a world of mythical intrigue where the topic of death is brought to life by speakers and artists.

Created by ChangeKitchen, our special Death over Dinner menu has been put together to reflect eating in a familial setting, a mirror of the meal at a wake. The food will be fragrant, sumptuous and from around the world, reflecting the global nature of death and its ability to bring us all around one table. The food is a celebration of life – part of the matter of death.

DEATH OVER DINNER PROGRAMME
Performer – Joanne Tremarco
The Birth of Death
Joanne will be sharing an extract from her critically acclaimed show The Birth of Death. A lyrical, humorous and thoughtful meditation on dying.

“Tremarco took the audience down a path that was both deeply personal and utterly remarkable.” – Liverpool Sound and Vision

“A tremendous piece of heart-breaking, exhilarating theatre.” – Garry Cooke Producer of Lancashire Fringe

Storyteller – Pyn Stockman
Take a journey down the well trodden paths of old folk tales into a time remembered by story. Where Death walks hand in hand with life and the old tales share their own wisdom.

Speaker – Professor Hilary J Grainger OBE
Hilary will be talking about the history, architecture and landscape of crematoria and some common misconceptions about cremation.

Hilary is a Dean at the London College of Fashion, University of the Arts London and is a specialist in nineteenth and twentieth century architecture. The leading authority on the late Victorian architect Sir Ernest George and the architecture of British crematoria, she has lectured and published widely in these areas.

All food and drink will be prepared by ChangeKitchen. All food served will be vegetarian or/and vegan, and non-alcoholic drinks options will be available.
