The Ideal Death Show is a weekend gathering of entrepreneurs, pioneers and progressives from the funeral industry.
Here’s a video of the show which took place in Winchester in September 2015.
At the Ideal Death Show you can talk about bereavement, funeral planning and the more unusual ways that people are choosing to mark their own passing.
We pick the best lecturers to talk about topics like what it feels like to die, what an embalmer does and how to write an obituary.
We invite people who work in ‘funeral world’ to tell us what’s new, what goods and services they’re offering and what they’ve observed in their work.
We host Death Cafés where people can speak honestly about their experiences of bereavement and loss.
We also invite keen bakers to make a funeral cake to take part in our competition. The bakers are asked to explain their motivation behind the cake’s design.
in 2016 we’re taking a rest.
It takes a long time to find a suitable venue, accessible to people across the country, which enables us to persuade the public to take part and get involved.
However, the Good Funeral Awards will be taking place this year as normal. And there will be small exhibition alongside the lunch. You can find out more at the Good Funeral Awards website.
