good life, good death, good grief

To Absent Friends

To Absent Friends is an annual festival of storytelling and remembrance which takes place in the first week of November each year.

People who have died remain a part of our lives – their stories are our stories, yet many Scottish traditions relating to the expression of loss and remembrance have faded over time.

To Absent Friends gives people across Scotland an excuse to remember, to tell stories, to celebrate and to reminisce about people we love who have died. It is an opportunity to revive lost traditions and create new ones.
