A Conway Hall Ethical Society sponsored trip to Northampton to celebrate the annual commemoration of Charles Bradlaugh, MP for Northampton from 1880 and 1891, and to the Leicester Secular Hall, Leicester.
The Charles Bradlaugh Society held its first commemoration on Sunday 29 September 2002.
The Society was initiated by Peter Mulligan who took on the role of Project Co-ordinator. He invited Christopher Pounds and Tony Upton to take on the roles of Secretary and Chair respectively.
The format of the commemoration has remained the same with officers giving the first oration, after which guests are invited to speak about Charles Bradlaugh.
Spaces are limited to 50 and are free to Ethical Society Members, and £10 for the general public which can be booked via Eventbrite here: http://charlesbradlaugh.eventbrite.co.uk/

We will be providing a coach that will pick-up attendees from these locations.

Is my registration/ticket transferable?
Members of Conway Hall Ethical Society may only transfer tickets to other current members of the society.
Non-members tickets are transferable.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No. We will have a list of names at the pick-up and will tick everyone off when we board the coach.
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
If you are taking the place of someone that has already booked tickets that is fine. Remember to give the name of the person that booked the ticket.
