Dead Inspiring

Who will you celebrate?

What is Celebration Day?

The idea behind Celebration Day is very simple: once a year – on the last bank holiday Monday in May, we should have a dedicated opportunity to celebrate those who have inspired us.

About the project

Support for Celebration Day

[Celebration Day] is an inspired movement that encourages people to take a moment to renew connections to the wonderful people who may have left our lives but can still live in our memories.
