THE LONDON MONTH OF THE DEAD 2017
7th October - 29th October
Anglican and Dissenters Chapel
London W10 5AA
For the fourth October running, we are back in London's Magnificent Seven Cemeteries with our friends A Curious Invitation for 36 events curated to inform, entertain and provoke on the subjects of Death and The City. Enjoy walks, talks, torchlit parades through the gravestones, story-telling, taxidermy, special visits to secret parts of London, performances, Death Cafes and more - many accompanied by deadly hot gin punch courtesy of our dear friends HENDRICKS and all featuring an amazing range of experts, writers, historians and participants.
20% of profits are donated to one of London's Magnificent Seven cemeteries. Previously we have supported Brompton where the chapel is now undergoing restoration. This year we will mainly be based at the wonderfully atmospheric Dissenters and Anglican chapels at Kensal Green Cemetery.
Meet Elizabeth Parish "Patient Zero' of Bioveva who aims to ERADICATE DEATH by old age. Meet Charles Caruana, PAST LIFE THERAPIST, to find out what mighthappen next, meet Garret Smyth Cryogenicist on how to be REBORN IN THE FUTURE (if the former two don't work out).
Visit the ghostly crypt under the Dissenters chapel, discuss your own mortality in our Death Cafe, hear about Funerary Fashion, Hauntings, London's Death Railway, Post Mortem Photography, Metropolitan Gothic, Forensic reconstruction, Death tattoos, parade through the cemetery at night on a torchlit journey to a magic lantern or shadow puppet show... and much, much more.
