The British Humanist Association Annual Conference 2016 will be held in the busy and bustling city of Birmingham, home of the Midlands Enlightenment, on 10-12 June 2016.

We’ve enlisted lots of talent to make it our most spectacular conference yet, including the likes of Shappi Khorsandi, Alice Roberts, A C Grayling, Peter Tatchell, and a host of luminaries from the worlds of science, history, the arts, and journalism.

Dining tickets to the Annual Conference have now closed, but we’re very pleased to announce Conference Extra tickets are now on sale. Conference Extra tickets are low-cost – just £79 for the whole weekend of plenaries and socialising with your fellow humanists, and £49 for students – and they will let delegates attend all plenary events in the main hall of the Annual Conference at Birmingham’s International Conference Centre. Join us for a very special summer weekend of fun and wonder.

Those looking to attend the full conference experience can still buy full-price standard tickets, entitling you to all the above, plus a reception, a range of parallel sessions each day of conference, lunch on Saturday, and tea and coffee each morning.

We are delighted to be welcoming the following fantastic guest speakers to Annual Conference 2016, and we will be announcing more in the weeks to come.
