Dorset Humanists is a friendly community group for humanists, atheists, agnostics and all non-religious people who want to live a good life and make the world a better place.
We meet several times a month in Bournemouth and other locations in Dorset for talks, lively debates and discussions on a wide range of subjects including ethics, science, human rights, philosophy, politics and the environment. We have regular monthly pub social evenings, walks, cycle rides and meals.
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).
