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.'

The plants are judged and awarded and there is a short discussion about their history, cultivation and merits ... Tea and coffee are available and members have a chance to chat with the each other and the guest speaker and ask the questions that have been bothering them for ages.

Open Lectures & Talks'Big Ideas is a series of events, mostly held in pubs in London ... Sessions generally start with a question. Someone who has some relevant expertise gives a very brief, informal talk. After that a discussion develops in a free and unstructured manner. It's not a lecture, and it's not a debate; it's a pub argument, but unlike any you've had before ... In case you were worried, Big Ideas isn't affiliated with any political, religious or other organisation, and we don't have any particular agenda ... Anyone is welcome to turn up.'
