Dorset Humanists is a welcoming and stimulating group for humanists, atheists and agnostics who seek to live ethical and fulfilling lives on the basis of reason and humanity. 

We meet twice a month in Bournemouth for presentations and lively debates and discussions on a wide range of subjects including ethics, science, human rights, philosophy, politics, our environment and much more. We also have regular monthly pub social evenings, and arrange meals and other social events from time to time.

Entry to events is free to members and non-members alike, unless otherwise stated (An optional donation of £1-£3 towards venue hire is appreciated).
