Let's open up the conversation in a relaxed, informal way.
Pilgrims organises a wide variety of events to encourage our local community in east Kent to come together and talk about death, life, bereavement and end-of-life care – subjects that we often avoid in our daily lives.
Whether the focus is watching a relevant film or listening to a poet read their work, these events are followed by informal discussions about the topics raised.
Please see below for our current schedule of events.
It was fascinating. I loved the mix of people, all ages and backgrounds and careers. Death is part of our lives; I think it's time we talked about it.
