Don’t miss out on one of the many free events taking place during Good Death Week 13-19 May.

This UK wide event takes place every year in May and gives individuals and organisations the opportunity to promote the positives of living in a society where people can be open about dying, death and bereavement.

The Council is marking the week by holding a series of events, the majority will take place at the recently refurbished Falkirk Crematorium.

All events are free but must be booked and includes talks, graveyard walks and guided ‘behind the scenes’ tours at the Crematorium - some of these events have already sold out!

Join Geoff Bailey from Falkirk Community Trust on Monday 13 May for an illustrated talk on the historic graveyards of the Falkirk district. Or go see the short film 'Holding Space' on Sunday 19th - an intimate, observational film showing an end-of-life Doula's connection to people at the threshold of life and death. Director Rebecca Kenyon will be available for a Q&A after the screening.

Book now to find out more about making a will, see a preview of a new film ‘Holding Space’, take part in an interactive session called ‘Plan your own Funeral’ as well as having a cuppa at the Death Café.
