This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 21st Mar 2018

**Part of our "Funeral March" season; a series of multimedia events to explore the often confusing, delicate and difficult to navigate world of grief and funerals. Doors 6:30 for a 7:00pm start***

How do we grieve for someone? How does it change and evolve as we get older? Cariad Lloyd's father passed away when she was 15 leaving her with emotions she was unable to express. So, she created The Griefcast for herself and other comedians to talk, share and laugh about the weirdness of grieving and death. Each time she talks to a different comedian about their own personal feelings of loss.

At this comedy one-off collaboration between the Pathology Museum at QMUL and 'The Griefcast' with Cariad, the audience can spectate at a live recording of the death podcast which has previously featured widely renowned comedians such as Robert Webb, Sarah Pascoe and David Baddiel.
