Our main Humanism meetings are free and held on the last Monday of the month. They're well attended and sociable, and usually take place upstairs at The Old Ship Pub, King Street, Richmond. We also have activities in other parts of South West London. You don't have to be a paid-up member of the Group or to join anything in order to take part in what we do. You're welcome simply to come along, meet like-minded people, and discover more.
All meetings, unless otherwise indicated, are at The Old Ship Pub, Richmond, and start at 8 pm, with socialising from 7 pm.

South West London Humanists Group is an independent organisation and is also a Partner of the British Humanist Association. But you don't have to be either a paid-up BHA member or a paid-up member of our group to attend our meetings, and the two organisations have separate memberships.
We don't push SWLH (or BHA) membership: anyone who's a humanist, or thinks they might be, is welcome to our meetings and events. But if you attend regularly, then we do appreciate it if you could join to help keep our finances in shape. Annual membership is very cheap and members get discounts on the ticket prices for our parties, and a vote at the AGM. Download our membership form here:
The British Humanist Association is the national charity working on behalf of ethically concerned, non-religious people in the UK. It's the largest organisation in the UK campaigning for a secular state and for an end to religious privilege and to discrimination based on religion or belief.
HUMANIST CELEBRANTS If you're looking for someone local to conduct a humanist funeral, wedding, baby naming or civil partnership, then go to the Ceremonies page where you'll find details of local Celebrants, all of whom are fully-accredited by the BHA.
