Death. What a relief. No more getting up early and all that mullarkey! But while we wait, let's visit the Wellcome Collection's Death Exhibition. On a slightly less facetious note, the idea is to discuss this often taboo subject in the context of atheism. Death is disconcerting, upsetting, humbling ... even invigorating?! People with near death experiences seem to get renewed zest for life, so maybe the inevitability is what makes us value life?
Can it be liberating to name our fears and say, "One day that will be me."? Come along and find out with friends, and we'll have a drink afterwards to ...er ...reflect. ;-)
(It has to be a Thursday as that is the only late night opening, and we may have to queue up. Meet in the foyer or in the queue.) We will wait till 19:15 and after that you can rendevous with the group by calling on the mobile number that will be emailed out.

After the exhibition we'll adjourn to the Doric Arch pub , which is more or less opposite, where we can while away a few more hours en route to the big D itself.
There was a joke comedian Danny Bhoy used to about giving carriage clocks and watches to retirees in respect of years of service: "Oh right, that's a great gift. Watch those final hours tick away in style with this lovely carriage clock".
Price: Free, exhibition is also free
