There is no one correct way to grieve, with as many ways to express grief as there are bereaved people. Join our panel of grief experts as they come together to bust some classic myths surrounding grief, seeking to enlighten us in the process.

One misconception is that there are defined ‘stages’ of grief that everyone goes through – and goes through in the same order. We’ll look at ways in which people express their feelings following a loss, at the lasting impact that grief can have, and at how we can grieve ‘well’.

We’re honoured to welcome Julia Samuel MBE to this event, alongside Andy Langford, Chief Operating Officer of Cruse Bereavement Care, one of the festival’s charity partners. Shelby Forsythia will also join the conversation, which will be facilitated by Dr Lesel Dawson, of the University of Bristol.
