Life, Death (and the Rest) is a four day event of talks, walks, theatre and film that culminates in this Sunday showcase with stalls and talks offering practical advice in dealing with death, dying and end-of-life choices.

We aim to support a growing social movement of talking about death, and how we remember our loved ones.

There is limited parking here at Arnos Vale so we encourage you to use public transport or walk whenever possible.

You will find the following exhibitors  in our Anglican Chapel and  Spielman Centre, as well as scheduled talks throughout the day:

Stoneletters Studio – hand carved memorials

And Vinyly  – when the album that is life finally reaches the end wouldn’t it be nice to keep that record spinning for eternity?

Tree of Opals  – cremation ash jewellery made from a loved one’s remains cast into beautiful pieces in solid sterling silver or 9ct gold.

Elysium Memorials – personal, bespoke memorials which are beautiful, unique pieces of artwork in their own right, yet the origin of their creation honours the life of a loved one.

Honest Coffins – quality, environmentally friendly coffins handmade in Britain

Brahms Electric Vehicles ltd – The Brahms electric hearse is elegant and restrained; a symbol of a considerate life that is not ostentatious or wasteful of natural resources.

Bellacouche – making fully biodegradable ‘soft’ eco coffins with integral shroud and wood frame, designed for an environmentally friendly natural burial.

Cradle to Grave – beautifully hand crafted in Dorset, they produce bespoke, unique coffins for green, environmentally friendly and alternative funerals and woodland burials

Steampunk exhibition – Victorian Spiritualism Through a Steampunk Lens.

Pyrotastic – offering a service they call ‘Launch a Loved One’, to send your dearly departed on one last spectacular journey

Poetry Machine – bespoke pay as you feel poems on the spot, at fairs, events & festivals

Somerset Willow – each one of our wicker willow coffins has been beautifully and caringly hand woven by one of our skilled basked makers in our workshops in Somerset, making each coffin unique, special and a personal tribute to a loved one.

Earth Vessels – customised cremation urns
