Open Lectures & Talks

The British Humanist Association 'holds various events through the year. These offer humanists and the public a chance to socialise, enjoy yourself and learn. 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.'

Open Lectures & Talks'We meet as a group once a month in Chelmsford, either for a formal lecture or discussion, usually on a matter of social concern or some aspect of Humanism, or twice a year for a social and once a year for an outing to a place of interest. Other activities help to promote a sense of community amongst Humanists in Essex, with our two Discussion Groups meeting monthly as a more informal alternative or supplement to our main meeting, which also allow members to become involved without having to travel to Chelmsford.'
