I went to the Brighton & Hove Humanists meeting held on 4th March, to see how they do things there. The meeting room is an extension at the back of the Lord Nelson pub in Trafalgar Street (the entrance to which I had some difficulty in finding since it runs underneath the station and is not signposted).
The speaker was a Sussex University student, Peter Brietbart, and although the title of his talk was "The Future of Belief" in fact this was just an excuse for him to reuse some articles he had written, presumably for a student group, on varied topics ranging from the way christians envisage Heaven and Hell, via Sharia Law, to the Israel-Palestine problem. The attendance as indicated by the photograph was high (nearly 40 although a few left before the question and answer session). So the room was full, and there was also a lot of noise from the pub. I didn't get to speak to any of the organisers, though I did recognise Bill McIlroy and Barry Duke among them. At least the pub had a nice line in cider.
