Announcing Day tickets for Humanists UK Convention 2023

4 May, 2023

With the full Convention line-up now finalised, Day tickets for Humanists UK Convention 2023 are now available to purchase today! With the release of day tickets, those who wish to be a part of this summer celebration of humanism, but cannot dedicate a full weekend, can now join in too. Tickets to join in with the Friday night comedy evening are available for £19, while Saturday and Sunday Day tickets are available priced at £79 and £59 respectively.

On Saturday, attendees will hear from scientists, historians, politicians, and authors on a wide range of topics, all varied, but all of interest to humanists:

  • David Voas, on Why humanism is the future
  • Zion Lights, on What the world misunderstands about energy
  • Chris French, on The science of weird $#!%
  • Susie Alegre, on Digital rights and freedom of thought
  • Robin Dunbar, on How religion evolved, and why it endures
  • Madeleine Goodall, on Liverpool’s Humanist Heritage
  • Emily Kenway, on The hidden crisis in caregiving, and how we solve it
  • Callum Brown, on How MI5 came to watch humanists

A highlight of the day will be the panel on The future of humanism in politics, featuring figures from all the leading political parties, including Member of the Senedd Julie Morgan, and Tommy Sheppard MP, Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Humanist Group, while Humanists UK President Dr Adam Rutherford will round off the day.

On Sunday, attendees will be treated to author and historian S I Martin on Lesser-told histories, Kate Pickett and Richard Wilkinson on Inequality: the enemy between us, Bobby Duffy on The Generation Myth, and a closing session from a yet to be announced final speaker.

Full-weekend tickets are still available from £119 (or £59 for students) for now – and still represent the best value for those who want to make the most of their weekend – but the Late Registration rate of £149 takes effect from 19 May.

Humanists UK’s Events Manager Ian Scott said:

‘With our Convention line-up now confirmed, we’re delighted to be able to make Day tickets available, to offer the flexibility so many people have been asking for. But those looking to attend should act quickly, and book before 19 May to avoid the increase in price with Late Registration tickets.’

Full-weekend and Day tickets are available now.
