Frank Turner

Frank Turner was made a patron of Humanists UK for his exploration of the human condition through the arts.


Since his debut in the 2000s, Turner has developed a unique sound which blends poignant lyricism, folk influence, and emotive rock vocals. His themes are varied, but his songs have touched on national identity, atheism, regret, and the liberating power of music.

Outside of his music career, Turner has been a prominent supporter of a change in the law to legalise assisted dying. Humanists UK has long supported attempts to legalise assisted dying across the UK, for those who have made a clear decision, free from coercion, to end their lives but are physically unable to do so themselves.

On becoming a patron, Frank said, 'I'm proud and flattered to be associated with Humanists UK. In an increasingly fractious world, it's important for there to be a strong, reasonable and intelligent voice for humanist ideas and solutions to our collective problems. I'm happy to do my bit to support a tolerant, secular humanism.'
