Grief Gathering In The Park with Sam Butler & David Harradine

June 4 @ 9:00 pm - 10:30 pm

This Grief Thing King Street Manchester 02 10 19 Richard Tymon 81

We’d like to invite you to take part in a small group conversation called a Grief Gathering. We’ll meet you at The Hub cafe in Victoria park, and in small groups travel around the park together as the sun is going down; talking, listening and learning about grief. This event is part of The Health Tree social prescribing project, a partnership with St Margaret’s House.

This Grief Thing is a project which addresses the silence around grief and grieving. We’re living at a time when many people find death and grief – our own grief or other people’s – almost impossible to talk about. We don’t know what to say, what to do, or how to act. So we stay silent, we pretend that grief doesn’t exist, or we hide it.

We’re really keen to hear from all sorts of people about how easy or difficult they find it to talk about their own or other people’s grief. There is no obligation to talk, you’re welcome to just sit and listen.

The conversation will be hosted by Fevered Sleep’s artistic directors Sam Butler & David Harradine. It will last approximately 90 minutes, is free to attend, takes place in Victoria Park and is open to everyone but booking is required. If you’d like to talk to us about your access needs or you have any other questions please contact us griefgatherings@feveredsleep.co.uk
