It is with much sadness that we have taken the decision to postpone our literature festival. Given current conditions and advice, we want to ensure that all our audiences, authors, volunteers and staff remain as healthy as possible and we feel it is our duty and responsibility to protect others by not proceeding with our events at this time.

We are currently investigating options for rescheduling events and ask that you bear with us in the meantime whilst we talk with different venues and authors. We are also in talks with our box office - run externally - and appreciate your patience whilst we finalise information for those who have purchased tickets for events due to take place at the end of March. We will keep you informed as soon as we have further information.

Thank you all for your continued support - as a charity we rely so much on income from our audiences and sponsors to keep running and hope that, however uncertain the future is at present, we can continue to bring high-quality, inspiring multi-arts experiences to the Midlands.

Death Cafe hosted by The Death Show

At a Death Cafe, people (often strangers) gather to eat cake, drink tea, and discuss the big and broad subject that is death. Since 2011, over 8150 Death Cafes have taken place in 65 countries across the world.

Artists Antonia Beck and Lucy Nicholls (from The Death Show) invite you to join this festival Death Cafe, and take part in a open discussion group about death with no agenda, objectives or themes.

Please note that a Death Cafe is a discussion group rather than a support or counselling session.

This event is free, however booking is advised.
