Mark Vernon asked me to see if any of you would be interested in the following. Happy to rsvp for those interested.
Let me know and I'll sort. Unsure of how many spots there are.

The Guardian's Cif Belief, in conjunction with St Paul's Cathedral, invites you to a series of discussions about belief and unbelief in an age of uncertainty.
1st November 2010: Joan Bakewell, Salley Vickers and Andrew Brown 13th December 2010: Karen Armstrong and Alan Rusbridger 17th January 2010: Terry Eagleton and Mark Vernon
Each discussion will begin at 6.30pm, and will take place in the Wren Suite of the crypt at St Paul's Cathedral, London. Our hope is to encourage a more sophisticated public discussion about religion between those on the inside and outside of faith.
The London Philosophy Club holds free talks from some of the leading contemporary philosophers, including (recently) Robert Skidelsky, John Gray, Galen Strawson, Angie Hobbs and Stephen Cave. We also organise debates, socials, and a regular reading group. Our events are fun, accessible and interactive, and are all guided by our belief that philosophy improves people's lives and should be open to all.
At the moment, we're the biggest philosophy club in the world, and have featured on the BBC World Service, in the Financial Times and Independent, La Confidencial and La Reppublica, and at the How-The-Light-Gets-In festival.
No background in Philosophy is necessary. You will get to know other philosophy lovers, curious souls, open-minded individuals who love wisdom and the exploration of ideas - in a non-academic, relaxed atmosphere, full of debate and challenging topics.
Please use at least your first name and a profile picture to join the club (We take care to block spammers.) Looking forward to having you join us!
