Grief Chats

Our Grief Chats are intimate conversations between two guests who have both experienced the same type of grief or loss. They are hosted by writer and broadcaster Mark Lemon, who’s behind the five-star rated podcast, Grief is my Superpower.

Mark’s guests include parents whose children have died, people who’ve lost their life partner and people who lost a parent too soon.

All Grief Chat events will be available to view from 09:00 on Friday, October 30th until 19:00 on Sunday, November 1st. They will also be shown on our Main Stage throughout the weekend as part of the live streamed version of the festival. After the festival, recordings of all Grief Chat sessions will be available on demand via The Grief Channel. Sign up now and pay £20 to access all recorded content from the festival for three years.
