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 returns for its seventh year at a time when, with Covid-19 ravaging, death has never been a greater part of the global consciousness. With the 22 events in the calendar this October, we aim to bring Londoners to a closer awareness of all aspects of mortality. Due to emergency measures this year’s festival will inevitably feature a stripped-down programme, but we still hope to enthrall you with a stimulating assortment of online talks, concerts and tours on the subject of death.

All talks will now be hosted online but we can still gather together, socially distanced and in reduced numbers, at the guided walking tours and candlelit cemetery concerts.

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. In 2020 there will be guided tours at Highgate, Kensal Green, Abney Park, Nunhead and West Norwood. All guided tours outside of the cemeteries will still feature a donation to one of the Magnificent Seven. The 20% donation for the online talks will go to NHS Charities Together.
