An all-day event on Saturday 18th January 2020, in association with the Conway Hall Ethical Society.
What? Talks and discussions on a range of fascinating philosophical topics, seriously and rigorously in a convivial setting – meaningful conversation about interesting ideas with interested people.
Who? Open to all – anyone interested in philosophy is welcome and no prior knowledge or expertise is needed, though experts, philosophy teachers and students are very welcome. Organisation is provided by Barrie Selwyn, our Chairman, and Phil Rowlands who is treasurer.
When and where? We have now secured advance bookings and our last Wednesday of the month meetings will be at 7.00 – 8.30pm, at the Druid's Head Pub, 3 The Market Place, Kingston-upon-Thames, KT1 1JT.
In addition to the formal monthly meeting there is an informal arrangement on the second Tuesday of every month whereby any interested member may choose to visit the Druid’s Head pub in Kingston Market Place from 7.30 pm onwards. On these occasions we have a topic led by a member who has prepared a short intro. This is followed by a lively discussion amongst those present (with a small amount of beer involved). We are always looking for new topics so please suggest any of interest. These occasions are normally listed in the events calendar. Note that there is no room booking so you need to be able to recognise the attendees.
