Autumn Conference events and votes - Bournemouth, 14-17 September

With Autumn conference in Bournemouth coming up this weekend, here's what we have planned:

Support and vote for our amendment to the Equal Marriage motion, calling for the early introduction of legally-recognised humanist weddings in England and Wales.


THE AGM, SUNDAY 15th SEPTEMBER, 1-2pm

With Lord Jonathan Marks

Blandford Room, Highcliff Marriott Hotel

Please join us for our AGM, catch up on the year's activities and elect your new committee.

And hear Jonathan Marks on his Co-Habitation Bill.

Can the bill protect spouses whose religious marriages have never been legally recognised?

What happens when LGBT+ education conflicts with parents' beliefs?
