Our friends at GALHA, LGBT Humanists, are hosting this event, and they are inviting CLHG members to attend.  This is the wording from their Meetup site:

"The BHA has around 300 accredited celebrants up and down the country providing namings, weddings and funerals for the non-religious. New research published by Stonewall and The Co-operative Funeralcare suggests that LGBT people fear discrimination when it comes to arranging funerals, and a recent study suggests that demand for all types of humanist ceremonies will accelerate even if humanist weddings don't become legalised soon. But with registry offices offering secular arrangements, why are humanist ceremonies so important?


Steve Emmett - BHA Ceremonies Training Coordinator, a funeral celebrant and Galha committee member

Mary Porter - BHA funeral celebrant, BHA Trustee and Galha committee member

Janice Thornton - BHA funeral, weddings and namings celebrant, and Yorkshire Regional Coordinator (ceremonies) 

Hosted by: Adam Knowles (Secretary), and Richard Unwin (Chair) "

    It's a shame I'm unable to go to this talk as I'd love to have heard it.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
