About the London Month of the Dead

Behold, London Month of the Dead, an annual festival of arts to inform, entertain and provoke on the subject of death and the city, is now is now a decade old. This year's grand calendar boasts a haunting array of over 60 talks, walks, workshops, and performances, each meticulously curated to ensnare hearts and minds alike. Placed throughout the hidden crevices of this ancient metropolis, you will be entertained by an enigmatic cadre of writers, artists, historians, experts, academics, practitioners, and performers—bearers of secrets and whispers from the shadowy depths.

The London Month of the Dead, ever mindful of the passage of life's ephemeral moments, donates a solemn tribute of 20% of their ticket revenue to the very cemeteries and venues that embrace these spectral affairs. In this solemn gesture, they honour the spirits that linger, immortalising the places that embrace the duality of existence.
