Welcome to the Festival Website

Hello. Thank you for visiting our site. As you will see, the festival is over for 2016 but there is still plenty to see here. We have a list of resources and a series of fascinating blogs for you to read from a wide range of contributors. We want to thank all of our speakers, volunteers and visitors for supporting the festival so generously and we look forward to planning the next one in Oxford in 2019. Yes, that’s right, we are changing from a bi-annual to a tri-annual pattern. Do get in touch if you would like an email reminder when our plans are taking shape. We never inundate you but would simply jog your memory about when we plan to start Kicking the Bucket again.
Meanwhile, we know that around the country others are planning similar events. Since we began in 2012 it has been reassuring to hear from more and more people setting up day events, conferences and festivals to encourage conversation around death and dying. There will be on in Cambridge on May 13th 2017 (to find out more email dyingforlife2017@gmail.com), and one is being developed in Devon and there are many many more. We are happy to promote these events if people send us the details.
You can also catch Liz Rothschild (Festival Director) in her one-woman show Outside the Box – A Live Show about Death by visiting www.fullcircleproductions.org.uk. She could be appearing in a venue near you any day over the next two years.
