External Event by LAAG - Up Close & Personal with Dr Richard Carrier

This Event has proved very popular and LAAG have now had to limited numbers, if you can no longer go please let us know, as we will be restricted to 30 attendees from the CLHG. You will have another opportunity to see and hear Richard on Friday 16th Nov.

Please click on BHA Events for more details.

The CLHG are delighted to promote this event hosted by our friends at London Atheist Activist Group, LAAG.

This very special event - an INFORMAL evening with Dr. Richard Carrier. Want to know if Jesus ever existed?...Carrier says no!

The price for the event is £5.00 payable on the door.

The first 40 people through the door who attend this event will get a FREE tickets to the event in association with the CFI on Nov 16th, otherwise it will be £7 or £5 for BHA members. See the BHA website for details of this event on the 16th November.

This event is rather special, as although he'll be doing formal talks whilst in the UK, Richard (and his partner Jen) said they want to informally "hang out, drink, and chat with you as much as you like". After seeing our site he said "I really want to absorb some UK atheist sanity"

I'm sure you guys can provide that, as well as a warm welcome to them both :-))) Our friends at CLHG have been kind enough to invite us to their events and naturally they are also welcome to attend and add more sanity!

Should be a very enjoyable, .... and rather unique evening!

    Thanks to the CLHG members who supported this event. We were very happy with the way the event went and it was really nice to see CLHG and LAAGers supporting rationality together! I thought Richard Carrier was an excellent speaker and it was really nice to be able to meet with him in this informal setting. Hope you all enjoyed it too :-)
