Promoting a positive, caring outlook, for the one life we have

What we do

We Gather

Public Lectures

We continually invite distinguished speakers to come and give talks about the latest ethical and social issues. These are generally held the third Thursday of the month in the city centre of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Costs are nominal — £1 for members, £2 for non-members — and this includes light refreshments. Doors open at 6.30 PM, talks start at 7:00 PM, and we finish by 9:00 PM with plenty of time for Q&A.

Details can be found on our Events page, but see the poster below for our current list of public lectures:
