Welcome to the Festival Website

Sadly we have had to postpone the festival until Autumn 2021 – but the good news is – Liz’s new book Outside The Box: Stories of Death, Bereavement and Life is now published!

She writes: ‘Over the last four years of gathering stories from my show Outside the Box: A Live show about death I have involved 300 people in the project. It feels so vital that we all hear each other’s stories. We hear from doctors, therapists and celebrities quite a lot these days which is wonderful but what fascinates me are these everyday stories that can teach us so much. This wonderful cornucopia of contradictory stories makes us laugh, cry, feel consoled and inspired. And in addition there is wonderful original artwork and a series of expert commentaries responding to the stories and offering insight, advice and resources based on many years of professional experience. I really hope you will get hold of a copy and tell your friends about it because I believe it can be a trustworthy companion to us all throughout our lives and deaths.’

The best way to buy the book is from the publishers PCCS. Postage is free in the UK. It is also available from Waterstones and Amazon and from all good independent bookstores.
