In celebration of Valentine’s Day, Zoe Cormier, science communicator and author of Sex, Drugs, and Rock n’ Roll: The Science of Hedonism and the Hedonism of Science, will share some amusing anecdotes which reveal deeper truths about human desire. Sunday Assembly is a secular community that celebrates life.

Our main speaker, Femi Fadugba, left his career in physics to write the story he wanted to read but couldn’t find anywhere else. In his talk, he will describe how he infused scientific facts into his debut sci-fi novel, The Upper World to enhance the emotional impact of the story.

From Men’s Rights activists and incels to spiralling suicide rates, it’s easy to see that, while men still rule the world, masculinity is in crisis. Nina Power explores how men and women can live together in a world where capitalism and consumerism has replaced the values that used to give our lives meaning.

Should we eat animals? This was once a question reserved for moral philosophers and an ethically minded minority. Rob Percival, an expert in the politics of meat, searches for the evolutionary origins of the meat paradox, asking when our relationship with meat first became emotionally and ethically complicated.
