As a part of the Dying Matters Awareness week, BrumYODO (You Only Die Once) are again running the well-received “A Matter of Life and Death” festival in Birmingham – “everything you wanted to know about death and dying but were afraid to ask”.

Elisabeth Whybrow, Head of Private Client at Silks Solicitors, continues to be actively involved with BrumYODO and the festival, and Silks are once again sponsoring the festival along with professional bodies STEP, Solicitors for the Elderly and The Arts Council England. 

Today, Elisabeth and team are involved in running a Death Café at Oldbury Library.  You can also take advantage of their expertise at the wills workshop in Birmingham at John Lewis Community Hub on Friday at 1.30pm.

“This May 10th -19th 2019 we are bringing you more high quality of myth busting, conversation inducing, death themed events. 

We kick off the Festival with A Life of Brian at the Electric Cinema a Movie Eat-Along presented by Conjurer’s Kitchen, and then follow up with talks and tours at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, a stunning series at the Coffin Works with literature and talks, then there are opportunities to meet Soul Midwives and End of LIfe Doulas, visit a Crematorium and to take part in practical workshops so you can make sure you have all the information you need to plan the funeral you want.”
