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 Kieran Quill who is treasurer.
