Courses and Workshops taking place at Conway Hall
Conway Hall’s nineteenth century pamphlet collection and putting ourselves in the shoes of radical pamphleteers such as Annie Besant, Ernestine Rose, Thomas Paine and Richard Carlile. Sharing their thoughts on topics such as women’s rights, freedom of the press, contraception and suffrage, we will inhabit their lives, creating poetry, short stories and blog posts to form an online exhibition.
Join the opening night of one of the most exciting London tango events in the year!

The famous couple will perform in the evening – exclusive to the UK!
Carablanca is London’s longest-running tango club. The friendly, informal atmosphere ensures that beginners and visitors mix easily with the regular dancers. Music is traditional Argentine tango, milonga and vals, played in tandas with cortinas by guest DJs.
At Philosophy Book Club we meet up regularly to discuss a key philosophical text that we read over several weeks or even months – philosophy is best digested slowly. Our first book will be Derek Parfit’s groundbreaking On What Matters, a powerful defence of objective ethical theory.
Irrespective of profession, age, culture or sexuality, the journey towards embracing who we really are can be the hardest process in life, and never ends.

Annie Besant and the Liberal, Radical, Socialist and Feminist Opposition to Birth Control in the 19th Century | Wednesday 28th November
