The Good Grief Festival
March 27, 2021 - March 28, 2021
The Good Grief Festival is a collaborative event led by the University of Bristol and supported by charity partner Marie Curie. The festival takes place online on 27th and 28th March, with a programme of over 40 free events and 70+ speakers.
This year’s festival explores the themes of ‘hope’ and ‘meaning’, and aims to provide a space where people can talk, think and learn about grief and perhaps find some support and healing in the process.
Children’s novelist, TV presenter, and poet Michael Rosen, will join returning festival favourite Julia Samuels MBE to discuss important themes such as love, loss, grief, creativity and the connections between them all. The host of The Lost Tapes podcast, Guvna B will share his personal experiences with depression and anxiety and explore how toxic masculinity affects men, especially black men.
Whilst the festival is free, you also have the option to pay £20 to gain access for a year to all events from Good Grief Festival and the Day of Reflection on the Grief Channel, along with 60+ hours of events from past Good Grief Festivals.
