What we'll do

The event:
The very first Festival of Reason and Freethought is here! Join us in this historic, ground breaking event as people of the ex-believing, non-believing and freethinking world get together to celebrate Atheism, Humanism, free-thought, reason, scepticism and Enlightenment values. A time to contemplate being an ex-believer or a non-believer in a world that is still predominantly superstitious, the biggest superstition by far being religion. The stellar line up of speakers includes Andrew Copson and A C Grayling and many more. Do not miss this! Spaces are limited, book tickets on Eventbrite now to avoid disappointment.
