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 one of the best loved and most anticipated festivals in the city's calendar, is returning to inform, entertain and provoke on the subject of death and the city. With the 48 events in the calendar this October 2021, we aim to bring Londoners to a closer awareness of all aspects of mortality.

Last year, our talks were all online bar a small programme of outdoor cemetery concerts, but in 2021 we're pleased to be retuning with both a selection of online talks every Tuesday and in-person (that is flesh and bone) lectures, concerts, workshops and guided walks every weekend.

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 2021 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 and most of our calendar events this year will go to the Friends of Kensal Green Cemetery and the valuable work they do keeping the historic monuments and buidlings in the cemetery.
