A conversation around death and dying – 11 May

11May 201718:00


Lecture Theatre 2, New Hunt's House Newcomen St, London SE1 1UL

Death and dying affect us all, but as a society we rarely talk about this shared experience. This film screening and panel discussion aims to start a conversation about death and dying in our local community. Doors will open at 6pm.

The evening will start with an introduction at 6.30pm by Baroness Julia Neuberger - rabbi, cross-bench peer, former chief executive of the King’s Fund, writer and broadcaster.

This will be followed by a screening of the film Two Weeks - a bitter-sweet comedy which follows a family's day by day struggle to deal with their mother's illness, intercut with her own reflections on her life and her family.

After the film there will be a panel discussion, including a person living with life limiting illness, a high profile clinician/researcher in palliative care, and a cultural expert. There will be opportunities for you to ask questions and share your views and reflections. Then to really get the conversation going, there will be a drinks reception. The evening will close by around 9.30pm.
