The Good Funeral Awards

The Lemon Table Lunch

19 August, 2013

julianbarneslemontableBroadcaster and Guardian obituarist, Michael Freedland, will host the ‘Lemon Table Lunch’ at the Cottonwood Hotel, from 12-2pm on Sunday 8 September 2013, as part of the Bournemouth Good Funeral Awards weekend.

The lemon is an emblem of death for the Chinese. Julian Barnes wrote a short story about how Sibelius used to attend a ‘Lemon Table’ where it was ‘permissable – indeed obligatory – to talk about death.’

Mr Freedland will be talking about ‘Hollywood Funerals’.

Any members of the public who would like to join the lunch can buy a ticket for £15.
