Plan your Dead Good Funeral with John Fox and Sue Gill

04 Dec 2012

On Wednesday 12 December (2.30-4.30pm) at The Manchester Museum.

This two-hour workshop will dispel common myths, demonstrate the nuts and bolts of planning a funeral, inspire you and give you confidence. Sue and John will guide you through a process to creatively consider your own funeral wishes and to arrive at an imaginative framework for a personal ceremony that is truthful and distinctive yet still legal and dignified.

John Fox and Sue Gill write Dead Good Guides and were formerly artistic directors of the celebratory arts company Welfare State International (1968-2006). Their publications, training programmes for independent celebrants and secular ceremonies have had a major effect on the funeral industry.

12 12 12 ~ humanity ~ Manchester is working in collaboration with several people, organisations, institutions, disciplines and above all human beings, in an attempt to expose, reveal and understand something of what it is to be a human being.
