Here are our upcoming events


Tuesday 25th June at 19:30 – Talk: Faith to Faithless

Our June speaker is from Faith to Faithless. Faith to Faithless was founded in 2015 to raise awareness of apostasy and support those who have left religion in the UK. For more about its work see https://www.faithtofaithless.com/

She will be talking about her personal and professional experiences of high-control religions. She will discuss the needs of apostates and people who have experienced religious trauma. She will also talk about the work that Faith to Faithless do and how the local humanist group can support this work.

Venue: The B-Bar, The Barbican Theatre, Castle St, Plymouth PL1 2NJ (accessibility information can be found here www.accessable.co.uk/plymouth-city-council/access-guides/barbican-theatre )

This event is free and all are welcome, although a voluntary contribution (in cash please) to help cover speakers’ costs would be appreciated.


Saturday 29th June – Social: Walk from Calstock to Cotehele

We’re planning to organise a walk from Calstock station to Cotehele Quay, where we’ll have something to eat and drink at the cafe there. We’ll then return to Calstock (it’s around 1.5 miles there and the same back). For those who prefer a longer walk there’ll be the option to loop around away from the river before reaching the cafe (this walk is about 5 miles). We will be travelling by train, taking the 10:24 out and coming back on the 15:26 or 17:46 train.


Saturday 13th July at 15:00 – AGM 2024

Our 2024 AGM is being held at 15:00 on Saturday the 13th July at Cafe Momus on Manor Street in Stonehouse, just off Union Street. As well as the AGM itself, the meeting will be an opportunity to let the committee know what the successes of the last twelve months were, and what you’d like to see the group doing over the next year. All are welcome, although only paid up members can vote.

Becoming a member is a great way of helping us with the work we do. It costs £10 (or £5 for the unwaged) and not only supports us financially, but also gives you the opportunity to get more closely involved in our future strategy and campaigns. If you would like to join, let one of the committee know at a meeting. We can now accept contactless card payment

We’re going to follow the AGM with a meal, location again tbc. Let us know if you’d like to come to either or both events


Saturday 13th July at 17:30 – Social: Meal at location tbc

As normal, we’re having a post AGM meal. All are welcome (and no need to have gone to the AGM) but please let us know if you’d like to join us so we can reserve a big enough table.


Tuesday 24th September – Talk: Progressive Primaries

We’re welcoming back from Anthea Simmons from West Country Voices who will be talking to us about Progressive Primaries. There seems to be little chance of any serious reform of our First Past the Post System. So, what other alternatives do we have? In South Devon a ‘Progressive Primary’ was held to select a single candidate that people could unite behind in the General Election in order to oust the sitting MP. Did this work and is it a model for the future? Came and hear Anthea’s views and join in the discussion.

Venue: The B-Bar, The Barbican Theatre, Castle St, Plymouth PL1 2NJ (accessibility information can be found here www.accessable.co.uk/plymouth-city-council/access-guides/barbican-theatre )

This event is free and all are welcome, although a voluntary contribution (in cash please) to help cover speakers’ costs would be appreciated.


Tuesday 26th November 2024 – Talk: Andrew Copson

Details to be confirmed, but we are hoping Andrew Copson, Chief Executive of Humanists UK, will be coming to speak to us in September.
