An unusual venue in central london, inside there appears to be lots of different rooms, a humanist library and a big hall. I recently went to see burlesque in this venue, but I'm not sure the venue suited the genre.

We were sat in the balcony which provided us a good view of the stage. There were lots of seats available, but it lacked the atmosphere of a burlesque venue and felt like I...more

This is a happy but little strange place.

It's a rented space venue and the groups that rent the rooms are everything from salsa dancing classes, lectures and pagan ritual groups.

Awesome people, amazing energy and really cool activities.

So worth checking out their website and what they got going on.more

Claims to be "the landmark of London's independent intellectual, political and cultural life", it hosts a wide variety of lectures, classes, performances, community and social events. It is the only remaining ethical society in the United Kingdom.

It's a particularly great venue for the Sunday Sermons held by The School of Life

I've been to Conway hall 3 times in the past month so needless to say it has something going for it :) Well, not the hall exactly, but the sorts of events put on there. As it's the base for SPES, they tend to hire out the venue to some really cool organisations, such as Centre for Inquiry and British Humanist Association. I believe they also hold some philosophy sorts of classes and workshops....more
