Convention 2014 Friday 7th – Sunday 9th March, Conway Hall & UCL
The annual convention of the AHS - National Federation of Atheist, Humanist and Secular Student Societies – will be held in London on the weekend of 7 – 9th March 2014 , and we have one of our best line-ups ever! You can buy your tickets here.
Our incredible speakers on Saturday 8th March include:
A. C. Grayling
- Philosopher and Master of New College of the Humanities
- Mathematician and libel reform advocate
- chief executive of the British Humanist Association
- Neurobiologist and philosopher of race and multiculturalism
- Philosopher and ethicist
- Labour MEP and womens’ rights advocate.
- Professor of Law and Ethics in Medicine and right to die advocate
We also have a performance by the BHA Choir, who have delighted us in previous years with their alternately touching and amusing non-religious songs.
We will be meeting on Friday 7th March from 7.30pm onwards for Welcome Drinks and food after your long journey at the Friend at Hand, a pub located right beside Russell Square tube station. See their website here and see how to get there from the train stations using google maps, as it is within walking distance from Long Kings Cross and easily accessible by tube from any station. This is a great chance to meet new people and get into the secular swing of things!
On Saturday 8th March, you will have the opportunity to listen to lots of interesting speakers on a variety of atheism, humanism and secularism related topics, not to mention meet loads of awesome new people. We will also have stalls run by a range of non-religious organisations which might be of interest to our members, which you can visit in breaks between speakers.
There will be an End of Convention Party at the Enterprise pub after the speakers day, when you’ll get plenty of opportunity to socialise with your fellow heathens.
Sunday 9th March, will be a day of workshops and discussions aimed at current and prospective committees, kindly hosted by Imperial College London. Workshops are a mixture of fun and usefulness, plus we will be giving out a number of awesome awards to societies – make sure to be there to pick yours up!
Book tickets here - £10 for students, £12 for non-students.
