The socials are for anybody experiencing bereavement who would like to meet up with others who have experienced something similar. The gatherings are informal and we often chat and catch as we tour the gallery. There is no rule that you have to speak about your bereavement – you may just want to meet some new people who are also going through the journey of bereavement. You are also very welcome to speak about your grief – it can be extremely cathartic and beneficial to open up to others and feel accepted as you are. A few of our team members will be there to chat to you and are always happy to answer any questions you have.
