Are you looking for local group events? Humanists UK’s network of partner humanist groups also host events up and down the country.

Faith to Faithless is Humanists UK’s programme providing support to ‘apostates’ and people who leave high-control religions. It puts on a mixture of socials and public lectures across the UK, as well as apostasy awareness training events for services workers.

Humanists In Conversation With… is an ongoing series of online events in which we speak to writers, activists, politicians, thinkers, and policy-makers about some of life’s big ideas.

From time to time, you can find information here about events hosted by other organisations who share our values.
