AHS Training weekend 2017

 Registration is closed for this event
June 24th, 2017 10:00 AM   --   June 25th, 2017 4:00 PM

Join us for the 2017 AHS Traning weekend. The weekend is always popular. It gives a chance to meet up with other students as well as opportunities for training in areas like event management, public speaking, and more.

This year the weekend will be even more important as it will be the opportunity to discuss and make any decisions on the changes to the structure of the AHS and the way that the BHA works with students.


Students and young people are the future of the humanist movement, and for that reason we are doing everything we can to make this event as accessible as possible, for as many people as possible.

  • The training weekend is free to attend
  • We will provide free hostel accommodation on the Friday and Saturday nights, for everyone who has booked by 21 June. No more available.
  • We will provide significant subsidies of up to £50 for train or bus travel (see details below)
