& Talks

A big part of our mission is to educate people about their choices after death. We provide regular myth-busting sessions to healthcare professionals and all those in the position of supporting the public with death and bereavement. We also invite groups behind the scenes at Poppy’s to see what gentle, thoughtful care can look like.

With social distancing now in place, we'll be conducting our events digitally for the time being. Keep your eyes out for virtual tours, talks, Q&A's and much more. If you have any suggestions, we'd love to hear about them.

As part of Dying Matters Awareness Week, we'll be taking you on a live virtual tour of our beautiful mortuary. We'll discuss things like how our daily work has changed with Covid-19 and how you can still have a meaningful funeral. We'll also be holding a Q&A at the end to answer any questions you may have.
