REGULAR last-sun-of-the-mont­h SOCIAL (follow-on from today's activism event)

With the Speaker's Corner Activism event today, our usual end of the month social will be in at the Victoria pub, (10 mins away, near Hyde Park) nearby so we can combine the two events - feel free to come to one or both of course!

We'll be in the bigger of the upstairs rooms (it's reserved for us), and you can order food too. Menu here.

Regally located on the corner of a terrace of smart cream houses, the Victoria provides a truly fascinating insight into a potent part of English history as well as offering a very pleasant drinking and eating venue. At one time divided into separate Public and Saloon bars, as was the custom, the downstairs area is now one big bar with fireplaces, unusual artefacts and a comfortingly local feel. The room upstairs with its open fires, comfy sofas and leather armchairs captures the mellow, respectable feel of the library of a Gentleman's Club. Just across the road from Hyde Park this is an off-the-beaten-track delight that combines old-fashioned charm with history and colour. If that's not enough Charlie Chaplin and Winston Churchill used to drink here - the pub was even Churchill's local for a time. What more excuse do you need?

Price: For social meetups we invite voluntary contributions of £2 to help cover costs of running the group, and particularly the cost of our speaker and activism events.

As with all our events, our friends from CLHG and indeed from any other secular organisation/meetup groups are always welcome

    Thoroughly enjoyable day which as usual was well organised and run by our esteemed leaders. Look forward to doing it again, hopefully when its a bit warmer ;-)

      Esteemed, LOL...don't think I've ever been called that before!. Like cats, I don't think atheists have leaders though ...we're happy to 'serve' you fantastic felines! And yes, the next one is scheduled for Jun30th, when it SHOULD be a bit warmer!

    I turned up, walked into the pub I don't know to meet people I don't know, couldn't see any meet-up signs or anything. Felt suddenly very shy so went for walk in Hyde park.

      What a shame, Sandra! Next time just come on up - we're friendly, welcoming, and unintimidating - honest! :-). We can't put signs etc up in pubs as they don't always like it, but all details are always on the site and we give as much info as we can, and also email out a contact number should be easy to find us :-)

      Yes, what a pity! If this hasn't put you off, please come to the Wednesday discussion or party on the boat at the end of the month - it'll be easy to locate us then.

    As usual we were having such a nice chat and discussion that most were still there until we got kicked out by the pub! Shame Roger, Alastair and Rich couldn't make the 'after-party'!, you were missed! Andre, Shrina, Frances and all who couldn't make it this time...look forward to you being able to join us next time - we intend on doing these fairly regularly through the summer.

    Sorry, didn't stay for this, family duties required other action. I would have liked to participate in the de-brief, though.

    Have to admit, even though at times it was painful, I did enjoy the event.
