LivUniHumanists on the BBC!

OK, for 2 minutes, on BBC Radio Merseyside this Sunday morning, but it’s still worth bragging about, right?

If you’re interested, take a look here, and fast forward to 1:12:00 if you specifically want to hear my nervous verbalisations!

We were approached by BBC Radio Merseyside, as they were covering the religious societies at the Freshers Fair for the Sunday morning ‘Faith and Ethics’ show, and asked us if we wanted to be included. Not wanting to turn down publicity, we said yes – and 5 minutes later, I was shouting into a microphone!

I was somewhat uncertain about being on a programme so much geared towards religious worship, but I figured presenting a friendly face wouldn’t do any harm. However, I was slightly paranoid (unnecessarily) about saying things that could be taken out of context for most of the interview! I hope I gave a good impression of non-religious students, anyway.

Introduction to Humanism and Fair Admissions

Join the Facebook Event here

19:00, Tuesday, 1st October, International Lounge, LGOS

Support the Fair Admissions Campaign

This event is the perfect chance to come and find out more about Humanism as well as a great opportunity to meet everyone! The committee will be hosting two mini talks –

‘Introduction to Humanism’
Daniel Newman will discuss the fundamentals of Humanism and what Humanists do and don’t believe, and the Humanism as a modern movement.

‘Fair Admissions’
Chris Malburn will be introducing the Fair Admissions campaign, which aims to open state-funded schools to everyone regardless of their religion. The aim is to set up a local campaign group made up of secular minded individuals from all across the community regardless of religion here in Liverpool.

The talks will be kept relatively short to allow for a little mixer and most likely the the pub afterwards! (Neither of which are mandatory of course!)

 

This will be held in the International Lounge, in Liverpool Guild of Students.

This event is hosted by the University of Liverpool Humanists, a student society. Our events are open to all, but we request a voluntary donation to cover our society’s expenses.

See you there!

I’m delighted to announce our first event! The wonderful Ash Pryce will be performing his fantastic show – How to be a Psychic Conman!

Are Psychics REALLY psychic, or are they just deceiving people?

No one can say for sure, but, as Ash Pryce will show us, it is possible to look psychic by bending spoons, finding hidden objects and appearing to remove someone’s tumours, without actually being psychic. In this fantastic show, we’ll find out how we can all be a psychic conman!

Ash Pryce is an entertainer and performer, founder of Edinburgh Skeptics and a theatre company in Leicester. He had toured his show How to be a Psychic Conman around the UK and recently debuted his new show How to Talk to the Dead in Edinburgh.

This event is hosted by the University of Liverpool Humanists, a student society. Our events are open to all, but we request a voluntary donation to cover our expenses.

See you there!
