What we’re about
Socialise and engage in stimulating and rational discussion with like-minded people. Work for a good life based on human values, not religious faith. Make the world a better place in the here and now, not a mythical hereafter. Celebrate the wonder of life and the search for scientific truth. Join our campaigns against divisive religious schools, religions dictating who can marry and against religious privilege generally. Formed in 2012 to promote Humanism in East London.

- East London Humanists Pub SocialThe George - JD Wetherspoon, London
Join us for an evening of relaxed chat and good humour at The George, a convivial Wetherspoons pub opposite Wanstead Tube. A chance for new members to find out more about our group, and what we do.
We will be gathered around tables upstairs. Some attendees should be easy to identify from Meetup. If in doubt phone 07801 429782 on arrival.
The George sells a wide range of drinks, hard and soft, and serves food until late. Prices are relatively reasonable - eg bottomless hot drinks for £.1.50.
Free and open to all.
