Visit the home of the South Place Ethical Society

Founded in 1793, the South Place Ethical Society, based at Conway Hall in Bloomsbury, is thought to be the world's oldest surviving freethought organisation, and is now the only remaining Ethical Society in the country. Nowadays, the Society is a charity devoted to an entirely secular approach to ethics and thought, amongst other more modest aims.

The educational charity now 'maintains a tradition of free enquiry in all areas of thought and action' and arranges many talks, courses and seminars for members and non-members as well as Sunday chamber music concerts.

For more than a hundred years the Ethical Society was based at South Place in the City of London, before it moved to its current spot Red Lion Square, in Bloomsbury, in 1929.

Nowadays the hall attracts a range of events, from lectures and concerts to book sales and dance classes, all at very reasonable prices (and sometimes free).

For more information, visit the Conway Hall website at http://www.conwayhall.org.uk, or the SPES website at http://www.ethicalsoc.org.uk.
