Valentine’s Surprise Blind Date with a Neighbour


Go on a Valentine’s Surprise Blind Date with a neighbour! Get to know someone from your neighbourhood a bit better, find out what you have in common, buy each other a drink and support a local cafe. There are three slots to choose from: 10-11am, 2-3pm and 8-9pm. All on 14th February 2017.

How does it work?

  1. Choose a preferred time-slot (10-11am, 2-3pm, or 8-9pm)
  2. Send an email to with your name, preferred time-slot and how your blind date will recognise you at the cafe.
  3. I will randomly match people who sign up for the same slot, will pick a cafe and let you and your blind date know where to meet.
  4. I will also provide you with a few questions to get the conversation started.
  5. Meet up with your blind date and let us know how it went!


Death Cafe North London


I host Death Cafes in North London (N8). Watch this space for forthcoming dates.

At a Death Cafe, people drink tea, eat cake and talk about something we all have in common but which is considered to be taboo: our mortality. More information about Death Cafes can be found at the Death Cafe website. I’ve also written a blog about my first Death Cafe experience.

“An uplifting experience.”



Table of Life: Remembering


In November 2016, on All Souls’ Day, I launched the ‘Table of Life’, an intimate setting to remember the people we have lost. People are invited to bring a dish that reminds them of their lost loved one, a picture, and memories. By sharing food and stories we will honour the people who have played an important part in our lives and who are still present in our memories.

New dates to be announced.

“Beautiful intimate gathering in warm, friendly and supportive space.”
