What we're about

We're an active and friendly Humanism group in London, UK. Our well attended monthly humanist gatherings normally take place on the first Tuesday of each month, in The Vestry, Richmond, South West London. As well as these main meetings, we have plenty of other interesting activities too. We're a Partner of Humanists UK.

To attend meetings you don't have to join or become a member. You're especially welcome if you think you may in fact already be a humanist and want to find out more.

There's no need to use the RSVP button here on Meetup - just come along!


There's also more information on our website:


Humanist Celebrants:

If you're looking for someone local to conduct a humanist funeral, wedding, baby naming or civil partnership, then go to Ceremonies where you'll find details of local Celebrants who are all fully-accredited by Humanists UK.
