Pilgrims Hospices, Canterbury Mini Arts Festival

Pilgrims Hospices will be hosting a mini arts festival on Saturday 18th May at their education centre on London Road, Canterbury, bringing together local community groups, artists, health professionals and local businesses to run a series of interactive workshops, talks and information stands, all designed to encourage reflection and conversation around death, dying and bereavement. 

The festival will form part of a wider national programme of events for Dying Matters Week 2019, a national campaign which aims to help people talk more openly about dying, death and bereavement and to make plans for the end of life.

Workshops & talks will include:

• Life drawing with Art in Canterbury. 
• Singing with the Lemon Zingers. 
• Remembrance wreath making with Essentially Hops. 
• Alternative funeral ideas workshop with Holly’s Funerals.
• Will writing with Boys & Maughan solicitors. 
• The role of a death doula.
• Living with Loss.

• Places for workshops can be booked via pilgrimshospices.org/bigconversation or by calling 01227 812616.
