1/ This is a NON-LAAG event (i.e event is not organised by this group, but by a third party) We cannot guarantee accuracy of details for 3rd party events as changes are not always given to us. We recommend you check all details with the 3rd party website before going.
2/ LAAG is about promotion and celebration of 'Reason' as a whole (with atheism as the main, but not only topic). We list those external events that may be of interest to LAAGers, & to support the whole 'reason' community of organisations and groups but we cannot guarantee their content, though generally the organisations we list are known and trusted.
3/ LAAG does not necessarily endorse any opinions expressed.
4/ LAAG organisers may not be present, so if you want to meet others who have RSVP'd you will need to arrange to do so by yourselves - in the comments boxes, or by emailing each other.
