What we'll do
Join humanists from across the south of England in Southampton on Sunday 17th June for an early celebration of World Humanist Day.
Our day will start at the Former Wool House, on the corner of Town Quay and Bugle Street (SO14 2AR), at 3.30pm with a sociable stroll around some of the historic sites of Southampton, a city known for its history as a major port and the departure point for the Titanic.
Following our walk, we’ll convene at 5pm in a local pub (Slug & Lettuce - Above Bar St, SO14 7FG) to hear from Richard Acton on 'Having More Productive Disagreements’. Richard is a former president of Humanist Students and is currently a PhD candidate researching the epigenomics of human ageing at Southampton University.
After that, attendees are welcome to stay for a meal and/or drinks.
The day will be an excellent opportunity to meet like-minded people from the south of England as we get together to celebrate humanism and our humanist community.
The event is hosted by the South Central England Humanist Network which brings together groups as far apart as Dorset and Brighton to collaborate, share ideas, and represent humanists across the south of England. This is the link to their Facebook post for the event:
(As I have often had to say for posts on this site, please don't take too much notice of the map on the facebook site as it indicates a meeting point a couple of hundred yards from the The Old Wool House. Our map above is more accurate - corner of Town Quay and Bugle St.)
