We’re all going to die! And yet most of us don’t address that fact until it’s too late. Coffin Club is a safe space for people to plan their perfect send-off and decorate their coffin too. This session provides a taste of what Coffin Club is all about, what’s involved in running a Coffin Club and why Coffin Club is needed.

Kate and Kate are independent celebrants (weddings, funerals, baby namings, ROVs etc). They weren’t long into their careers as funeral celebrants when they turned to each other and said ‘Is this the sort of funeral you would want?’ The answer from each of them was a resounding ‘No’. And so, Coffin Club was born. Kate and Kate are passionate about making people aware of all the choices they have around their end of life celebration. They founded Coffin Club in Hastings in 2017 and have seen it go from strength to strength to become a national organisation with Miriam Margolyes as its patron. They are obsessed with changing the face of the end of life celebrations and getting everyone talking openly about death. Come and join them in the funeral revolution!
