London Month of the Dead - Present, Present and Future, October 2019, A series on death curated by Antique Beat and A Curious Invitation supporting Brompton and Kensal Green cemeteries
About the London Month of the Dead

London Month of the Dead, now in its 9th year, is an annual festival of arts to inform, entertain and provoke on the subject of death and the city. This year will feature over 50 talks, walks, workshops, performances, tours and trips to secret parts of the city led by an eclectic host of writers, artists, historians, experts, academics, practitioners and performers.

We also have a weekly program of online talks given by international speakers for friends who cannot make events in person

Each year the London Month of the Dead donates 20% of their ticket revenue to the venue that plays host to each of their events. The 20% donation for the online talks will go to the Friends of Kensal Green Cemetery and the valuable work they do keeping the historic monuments and buidlings in the cemetery.Online talks run throughout the year under the London City of the Dead banner.

While the London Month of the Dead has always served as a celebration of death, our number one priority is to safeguard the lives and health of our visitors, speakers and performers.

For this reason we will always act in accordance with government guidance on running events safely to make sure we’re Covid secure. Please note, if any in-person events need to be cancelled due to another outbreak then all in-person talks will go online and ticket holders will be refunded the price difference between the two types of events.
