If I have learned one thing about the Brits since moving to London just over a year ago, it is that they do not take culture lightly. Oh no, no, no. Everything from theater to literature, music to comedy, art, fashion and now even...drumroll please... food is all handled with an intelligence and dedication I am enjoying immensely.
So I am not surprised in the least that the weekend long Deathfest, held at the city's cultural Southbank Center, was curated to include a jam packed schedule of interesting events. To whatever degree you are involved with death - weather it has affected your life profoundly, is a mere curiosity, something to be avoided and feared at all costs, or is in someway your profession - you would have been hard pressed not to find at least one event that grabbed your attention.
