Conway Hall

Conway Hall is owned by Conway Hall Ethical Society and was first opened in 1929. The name was chosen in honour of Moncure Daniel Conway (1832 – 1907), anti-slavery advocate, out-spoken supporter of free thought and biographer of Thomas Paine.

The Hall now hosts a wide variety of lectures, classes, performances, community and social events. It is renowned as a hub for free speech and independent thought.

Our Library holds the Ethical Society’s collection, which is the largest and most comprehensive Humanist Research resource of its kind in the United Kingdom.

Beethoven Trio in B-flat Op. 97 “Archduke”

Pre-concert talk by Joseph Fort at 5:30pm in the Brockway Room

Beethoven's 'Archduke' trio has achieved mythical status in the repertoire. Probably Beethoven's last complete composition in this genre, it was also the last work he ever played on the piano publicly. This rich programme juxtaposes Beethoven's piece with two less well known piano trios: César Franck's Opus 1 from his student days, and another by Beethoven's contemporary Johann Nepomuk Hummel. This talk will consider the context in which these three trios were written, and will introduce and explore some of the music prior to the evening's performance.

Cryptozoology, or “the study of hidden animals,” focuses both on creatures generally considered extinct but believed by some to still exist, as well as creatures of mythology, legend, and folklore that are purported to be based on a biological reality. David Floyd‘s presentation will pursue the idea that such creatures and their similars have appeared so consistently throughout the matter of western civilization as to indicate a biological reality as their origin.
