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.

Where are you from? This is a question many of us were asked at some point in our lives. The majority of people tend to answer this by giving the name of a country, for example, ‘I am from the UK’. Others are more specific, preferring to identify with a region or a city – ‘I am a Londoner’. Some feel strongly about their parents’ country of origin, others only consider their own country of birth.
