Leeds Bereavement Forum run a series of free monthly lunchtime Special Interest Group talks covering different issues surrounding death, dying and loss. Speakers cover a variety of subjects such as what makes a good funeral, advance decisions, end of life care and bereavement in Leeds hospitals and lots more. Open to all we hope our free talks will be the perfect networking opportunity and a different place to eat your lunchtime sandwiches!
From December 2016 until July 2017 Leeds City Museum is running a Dying Matters Exhibition. In partnership with Leeds Museums and Galleries our monthly talks during this time will run at Leeds City Museum. The talks will normally be held on the last Wednesday of the month from midday until 1pm.
Please note between August and December our talks will be at Oxford Place Centre. To see our list of talks and to book please visit Eventbrite.
