Kate Saffin talks to Robert Peacock about Death on the Fringe








Kate Saffin talks to Robert Peacock  from TV Bomb about Death on the Fringe. Death on the Fringe is an initiative started by the local Palliative Care Partnership last year, a festival within the festival. The partnership has a year round campiagn ‘Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief’ which aims to to make people aware of ways to live with death, dying and bereavement and help them feel better equipped to support each other through those difficult times. They approached Robert Peacock of TV Bomb for some help to put together a programme highlighting shows and events at the Fringe which focus on death. Which sounds rather morbid…

Only it isn’t . The shows span comedy, drama and dance with, for the first time this year, a series of more talks by healthcare specialists. The result is a very broad look at the end of life and all its implications – for the dying person and their family and friends.
