Our Events pages contain details on these, as well as related events held by other organisations, and other notable dates ... Numerous Local, Student and Special Interest Humanist Groups affiliate to the British Humanist Association from across the UK. These groups are independent and autonomous but affiliate to us to show that they fall under the humanist umbrella and that they agree with our overall purpose as an organisation ... These offer further opportunities to meet like-minded people, many groups hold talks and social events, or even undertake actions in the local community or campaigns work in line with BHA objectives.'
